At ACCE Institute we believe that to change the community people live in long term, we must work to build lasting people power. We help build that power through leadership development. civic engagement, and popular education around a set of issues of concern.  Campaign analysis and planning to address those issues is the missing link between abstract engagement methods and powerful community change.  

As a multi-issue organization, ACCE Institute is helping community members fight for worker's rights and benefits, sustainable communities, access to affordable housing, a strong safety net system, and progressive revenue to fund the services and programs we all rely upon.
