Action Now is a multi-issue grassroots organization of working families in the Chicago metro area. Our issue campaigns come out of listening to community residents through regular monthly meetings, engaging the base by going door-to-door and mobilizing all residents to take part in their community. Our leadership development includes formal leadership training and active involvement of members in the planning, implementation and evaluation of issue campaigns. Action Now has performed rolls calls and smoke out on our west side and south side communities. We have also discussed in our monthly organizational ward meetings the extent of overreach, as well as the absence of police in our neighborhoods.
