We teach people a better way
to do politics.



Organizing across lines of difference to drive progress for families

We are politically engaged, yet radically non-partisan.

We believe true democracy starts not with simply casting a ballot, but with building a culture of empathy that seeks to understand the experiences of our neighbors and negotiate around the interests we have in common.

That's how we build the solidarity and power to hold government accountable to common-sense issues.

Backed by 80 years of effective organizing principles

ACTION is affiliated with the Industrial Areas Foundation, the nation's oldest and largest grassroots organizing network.

We follow a model of broad-based institutional organizing—bringing together various faith-based and civic institutions for the common good of our members and the community at large.
