About Community Action Works

At Community Action Works, we believe that environmental threats are big, but the power of well-organized community groups is bigger.

That’s why we work side by side with everyday people to confront those who are polluting and harming the health of our communities. We partner with the people who are most impacted by environmental problems, training them with the know-how anyone would need to make change in their own backyard.

Because when you and your neighbors know how to make change, you can build the power to transform your world.

Our mission is to work side-by-side with communities, empowering you with the skills and resources needed to prevent or clean up pollution at the local level.

Since 1987, Community Action Works has worked with more than 1,000 communities and trained more than 20,000 individuals to confront polluters and seed solutions across the Northeast.
