ACT: Anne Arundel Connecting Together

ACT (Anne Arundel Connecting Together) is made up of leaders and organizers building power to improve the lives of our families, communities, regions, and nations. ACT is a non-partisan organization of 28 faith and community-based institutions in Anne Arundel County.

We organize the two universal sources of power -- organized people and organized money -- so that our organizations can move powerful institutions in the governmental and private sectors to act.

We are non-ideological and pragmatic -- building relationships, based on shared interests, across the lines that tend to divide us.  We are also strictly non-partisan, not favoring or supporting any party, but fiercely favoring and supporting those issues and strategies that bring more dignity and greater opportunity to an ever-widening circle of society.

We challenge people to imagine the change they can accomplish, connect leaders to multiply their power, and organize people by the thousands to make their voices heard. We set high goals, design innovative strategies, and stick with issues until they are fully addressed. Our time frame is not the market cycle or the news cycle or the election cycle, but the generational cycle of families and institutions.

We believe it is time for a new capacity and generation of grassroots leaders in Anne Arundel County who unite to solve issues at the local and county level.
