About Us

People’s Action is a network of grassroots organizations from across the country that builds the power of poor and working people, in rural, suburban and urban areas, to win change through issue campaigns and elections. When we say “poor and working people,” we mean all of us who are hurt by the 1% and corporations: poor people, low-income people, working class people, professionals, small business owners and unemployed people. We mean Black, white, Latino, Asian and Native people. We mean youth and students, and we mean retired people, elderly people and people with disabilities. We mean men, women, transgender, and gender non-conforming. We mean straight people and LGBTQ people. We mean citizens, and we mean immigrants. All of us.
