United StatesACTION (Active Communities Together In One Network) Northwest connects, supports and advances the growth and effectiveness of multi issue organizations and grassroots socio/ economic justice groups. We help increase their capacity for collective action on their various platforms. We assist organizations in recruiting and developing new activists for civic participation in socio/economic justice and human rights by providing quarterly training and workshops, supplying volunteers, sponsor events and give out grants so each organization can better achieve their objectives. ACTION NW works with organizations interested in:
• PEACE ... WOMEN'S RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS
• LABOR ISSUES, RACIAL DISCRIMINATION ...
• LGBT RIGHTS ... SOCIO-ECONOMIC JUSTICE
We are partnered with several organizations throughout the Pacific Northwest, with members in the Puget Sound region, Eugene, Portland, Pullman and Spokane with more being added as we grow.
