About People’s Action/Institute
People’s Action Institute (501c3) and sister organization People’s Action (501c4) are national progressive organizations supporting the mobilization and leadership of the grassroots in support of an agenda that puts people before profits. People’s Action/Institute builds the power of poor and working people, in rural, suburban, and urban areas to win change through issue campaigns and elections.
With offices in Washington, D.C., and Chicago, IL and remote staff across the country, we support and advance state-based and national fights for a People’s Green New Deal, Medicare for All, A Homes Guarantee, an End to the Drug War, and more. Our member organizations, 40 organizations across 30 states, improve lives by running state and local level issues and electoral campaigns, leading statewide tables, and taking collective action to change national policy and politics.
Our member organizations have won important victories at the national, state, and local levels, including health insurance for millions and the reversal of health care laws that discriminate based on citizenship, stopping Wall Street banks from selling predatory payday loans to their customers, and historic legislation like the Community Reinvestment Act and the creation of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
We take our members to the front doors and boardrooms of the worst actors in American life; from racist politicians to bank CEOs.
We work to defeat the “business as usual” politics endemic to all parts of our political system. We elevate people-power over-concentrated wealth, replace milquetoast talking points with bold solutions to radically transform and democratize our economy and government, putting the fight for racial justice at the center of the public conversation.
