Citizen Action is one of the oldest and most respected organizing groups in our state. We are committed to achieving social, racial, economic, health, and environmental justice
Our organizing base is the strongest it has been in our 38 year history, and we are one of a handful of groups with a member-leader base across the entire state.
Citizen Action represents members across the state through its local chapter system (called Organizing cooperatives), including the Driftless Region, Northwestern, Northcentral, Northeastern, and Southeastern Wisconsin. In addition, we have a Healthcare For All Cooperative and are developing a new African-American lead cooperative in Milwaukee called North Side Rising.
Our Organizing Cooperatives, where members who make monthly sustaining donations play a deeper democratic role in leading our work, is considered a national model for making organizing more sustainable.
