ACT is the oldest progressive grass-roots political action group in the Foothills, and one of the most effective.  For 40 years, we've been fighting for progressive ideals at the city, state, and national levels.  Our special focus and competence is on elections and campaigning; individually and as a group.  Our members have helped elect numerous candidates to local and state office -- candidates committed to making positive changes in our communities. ACT is a great way to meet other politically engaged people -- activists, officeholders, future candidates -- and to get better informed about key issues.  We do have a real impact! 

There is also an opportunity to get involved in the Democratic Party through our sister organization, the Arroyo Democratic Club. We are among five local clubs that form the United Democratic Headquarters.
