Action Now's mission is to organize working families and strengthen their voices on issues of racial, social and economic justice. Action Now is active on issues that include foreclosure and vacant properties, school improvement, access to health care, living wage jobs, utility costs, immigrant rights, public safety, (both antiviolence and criminal justice reform), and environmental justice.
Action Now is a member-driven organization. Our issue campaigns come out of listening to community residents through regular monthly meetings, engaging the base by going door-to-door and mobilizing all residents to take part in their community.Our leadership development includes formal leadership training and the active involvement by members in the planning, implementation and evaluation of issue campaigns.
Action Now members are committed to fight for equal rights, equal services, and equal justice for working families.
