People’s Action is building multiracial, progressive organizations in rural counties to counter white supremacy and corporate greed. Rural residents are uniting around issues like health care for all, public education, decarceration, immigrant rights and getting big money out of politics.

People’s Action is one of the largest and the fastest growing multiracial, progressive organizations in the country, with 48 member organizations in 32 states and more than a million people working for racial, gender, social and environmental justice.
