Citizen Action Center

Whenever everyday people decide to become part of the democratic process, problems definitely get solved, and things do change. The most important result of grassroots action - a strengthened democracy.

Citizen actions give much needed hope to countless others, some of whom have no voice of their own.

"Let us rise up tonight with a greater readiness. Let us stand with a greater determination. And let us move on in these powerful days, these days of challenge to make America what it ought to be. We have an opportunity to make America a better nation." Martin Luther King, Jr.
Once you get started doing something, others will fall in beside you. People pay attention especially when you are fueled for action by your heart, your knowledge, or your convictions. Many other people are just as ready as you are to do something to make our country better. They may have only been waiting for someone like you to step up with the idea. When citizens get together at any community or neighborhood level, their actions absolutely generate a number of remarkable side effects that benefit everyone.
"Let us never forget that government is ourselves and not an alien power over us. The ultimate rulers of our democracy are not a President and senators and congressmen and government officials, but the voters of this country." President Franklin D. Roosevelt
Citizen action is the lifeblood of democracy. Activism is dependent on our freedom to review information, to seek the truth, to accumulate facts, to speak out, to gather together, to vote, and to actively participate in community and all aspects of our government.
