Description

ACT (Advocates for Community Transformation) seeks to affirm and protect the God-given dignity and legal rights of inner-city residents to live in a safe, stable neighborhood by empowering them to be advocates for community transformation in their own communities. ACT pursues justice for the community by working on a grass-roots level to organize local residents and educate and counsel them about their rights. By representing inner-city residents and pairing them up with volunteer legal teams, we work together to hold the owners of drug houses and hazardous properties accountable. ACT’s vision is for inner-city residents to experience God’s redemptive plan through safer communities free from crime and urban blight.

General Info

We offer a variety of ways for people to use their abilities, gifts, and skill sets in our work of bringing justice to the inner city. There are opportunities to serve along side us through prayer, financial giving, legal casework, and community outreach events! Please contact us through our website at www.actdallas.org to find out how to get involved!

Earlier this week, we posted a link to an article that talked about raising justice-minded kids. So many of you strive to put this into practice with your own family. Let us know, what things do you do to make your kids more aware of injustice? We would love to hear!
