ACTIONN has decided to disrupt the political status quo during the 2020 campaign season. Rather than sitting back and letting candidates, political parties, and other special interests drive the conversation we are inviting people of faith and goodwill to engage voters and candidates in a different and more powerful way. We want to transform the relationships that we have with our elected leaders and set the stage for real solutions to our community’s most pressing challenges.
Over the summer of 2019, we held over 35 community conversations that engaged over 300 of our neighbors, friends, and family members. Out of those conversations, we identified the values and concerns that our community most wants to see lifted up and created a community platform to drive our voter and candidate engagement at the local, state, and national levels. Below, you will find our community platform purpose statement and issue focus areas.
If you are interested in getting more involved with our civic engagement work, please sign up for one of our Fall 2019 Civic Engagement Workshops and/or contact our Lead Organizer, Aria Overli, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
