A justice organization that empowers inner-city residents, through legal advocacy, to seek resolution of crime-ridden properties in their neighborhoods.
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.
