We all have great ideas. But turning ideas into action is harder than one might think, especially in neglected areas with limited resources.
Since 2015, the Urban Action Network supported local activists and community-based organizations to create and promote community solutions. UAct provided in-kind, hands-on project management assistance to design, develop, execute and sustain community-based projects and activities. We provided tools, resources and connections to help local activists and organizations realize their goals.
Now, in 2023, UAct is redirecting its focus from hands-on neighborhood and community projects towards supporting, promoting and celebrating community activism for positive change. Regular activities throughout the year will showcase model projects/programs and best practices around timely subjects like affordable housing, economic development, and environmental issues by hosting guest speakers, forums and/or trainings with the hope of fueling awareness and action.
Please excuse our mess as we transition our work and update this website to reflect our new evolving focus while preserving our past accomplishments.
