When the real battle for San Antonio's heart, soul and future was fought, COPS - broad based and powerful - was there making it happen. COPS pulled the trigger for change by launching the fight for single representative city council districts in the mid 1970's . In the face of unified establishment opposition COPS carried the day in 1977. A newly democratic city was born.
Relentlessly, decade after decade, COPS fought for the cut out, the shut out, the disenfranchised, the underdog. The landscape of the city was physically, socially, economically and spiritually transformed. The story continues to unfold as COPS/Metro breaks new ground in workforce development, infrastructure, living wage, college access, school reform, health care, immigrant integration, children/youth engagement and more.
