Promoting Participation in the Moraga Community

Moraga Trail

Our Mission

Moraga Citizens Network is a grassroots organization dedicated to encouraging participation in the life of Moraga in these ways:
First, we provide or direct members to non-partisan, factual information on current issues.
Secondly, we assist the town staff in publicizing public meetings and town-sponsored events when needed.
Finally, Moraga Citizens Network announces many recreational, educational, and fund raising events offered in Moraga by the Town's service organizations, library, non-profit organizations, and Saint Mary's College - all towards the end of promoting participation in the Moraga community.
Our primary tool is a bi-monthly e-bulletin called The MCN Link. Sign up Here.
Moraga Citizens Network celebrates 10 years of "keeping you in the loop." Founded on January 31, 2005 in the Moraga library, Edy Schwartz and about 25 others were inspired to "promote participatory democracy" in Moraga through this new grassroots organization. They believed that if residents had access to information, agendas, staff reports, minutes of meetings, as well as greater attendance at Town Council meetings that participation in town issues and important decisions would grow.

Celebration of this 10th anniversary has occurred in a couple of ways:
- an article in the Lamorinda Weekly
- a "proclamation" given to Edy Schwartz, Ellen Beans, and the MCN Board by the Town Council honoring the work of Moraga Citizens Network. The photo below shows Mayor Wykle holding the proclamation, standing among his fellow Council members and several MCN Board members.

MCN hosts a Staff Appreciation Luncheon
On February 12 representatives of many organizations gathered to thank our small but mighty Town staff of 34 for all they do to keep us residents informed of the many issues and developments in Moraga. We served a tasty lunch in the Hacienda. The banner below was created by a group of 4th graders attending Los Perales.
