About Us

ACTIONN was formed in 2009 to develop the leadership of people of faith at the grassroots level to achieve the power necessary for creating positive systemic change.

Bringing people together across racial, economic, and religious lines, ACTIONN listens to the stories of the people in Northern Nevada, and our campaigns are deeply rooted in those stories and our shared faith values.

ACTIONN leaders connect with civic and political decision-makers to build relationships, identify common concerns, find solutions, and take action to improve the quality of life and expand opportunity for all Northern Nevada families. Through partnership with faith communities and their members in Northern Nevada, emphasizing connection with people of color, low-income communities, the marginalized, and the politically disenfranchised, ACTIONN works to change the balance of power and achieve positive structural change through building and working with organizations at the local, regional, and statewide level.
