About ACT for Social Justice


ACT is a collaborative providing advocacy, training, and consulting to raise consciousness about oppression and privilege. Much of ACT's work is focused on bringing about racial and economic justice so that all people are safe, valued, empowered and thriving. ACT provides strategies and tools to put equity into practice personally, organizationally, and at the policy level. Since it's inception in 2014 facilitators have logged over 300 workshop hours with preschools, non-profit boards and staff, service providers, churches, colleges, police, youth, teachers, and school administration.

Why Equity?

 equityWhat a great illustration of equity! Yet why do these folks need to be peeking over the fence, why don’t they just have tickets to the game? Equity would mean that all folks have tickets to the game, have jobs that pay livable wages, have quality education provided from preschool through college, and have a voice in the decisions that impact their lives. This isn’t the reality right now.

That’s why talking about equity is so crucial to building a socially just world.

There are many ways for you to bring equity to your workplace. Here are just two examples. If you are an organization that addresses hunger and you prioritize equity you would ensure that seats on the Board of Directors are reserved for people who know what it is to be hungry. If you are a school that prioritizes equity you would ensure that the discipline program policies take into account how the stress of hunger & poverty impacts kids.

Equity is important. Let’s work together to make it a reality.
