ACTION (Allied Communities of Tulsa Inspiring Our Neighborhoods) is Tulsa's only broad-based organizing effort. Through our member institutions (congregations and non-profits), we teach the practical skills of public engagement to Tulsans. In so doing, ACTION aims to sustain a vibrant democratic culture in Tulsa, which builds the power necessary to effect change around issues that matter most to our families. Channel 8 speaks with ACTION leaders about this mission: http://ktul.com/news/local/community-group-trying-to-inspire-community-action-in-tulsa
ACTION is a partner organization with VOICE (Voices Organized in Civic Engagement) in Oklahoma City as well as affiliated nationally with the Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF), which is the oldest and largest organizing network in the United States. The IAF operates under the West/Southwest IAF Network.
