Together, we rise.
Organized, we thrive.
We face a triple crisis
Devastating Climate Crisis
The Rise of Authoritarianism
The Organizing Revival is here!
People’s Action builds the power of poor and working people in urban, rural, and suburban areas to win change through issue fights and elections. We are a national network of 40 state and local grassroots power-building organizations in 29 states, united in the work of building a bigger “we.”
Nine grassroots organizing networks came together in 2016 to form a powerful national organization with more than a million members to fight for our communities and win. Over five decades, we have won material improvements for the lives of millions of people, with victories that include the Community Reinvestment Act, Superfund, the Affordable Care Act, the Dodd-Frank Financial Reform Act and the MAT Act.
How we win
To build a diverse and inclusive democracy that reflects the voices of all, we emphasize community-driven, power-building initiatives. The Organizing Revival is our effort to strengthen the movement for social justice with the best practices of community organizing so we can build a multiracial democracy that works for all of us, combat authoritarian overreach, and find solutions to the crises we face.
