Our Purpose

The purpose of the OIC is to foster an inclusive community through education, development of programs and projects, communication initiatives, and regular attention to matters of intra- and intercommunity relations.  Citizen-driven, the OIC is specifically constituted as an organization of private citizens and residents of Oakwood and interested parties who are not residents of Oakwood, faith, ethnic and cultural leaders, and individuals from the business and media communities in the Oakwood area and beyond.
