COCO originated in 2008 via residents and organizations in the Greater Houston area to make sure that community interests are represented at the city, state and national levels, and that stakeholders have a vested interest in maintaining healthy, sustainable communities. Attendees included Rev. James Caldwell, Cecelia Fontenot, Thelma Scott, Council Member Karla Cisneros, Dr. Carla Brailey, Vicky Pink, County Commissioner Rodney Ellis, Nikki Nsombi, Martha Hernandez, Dr. Frances Dyess and several more.
