ActLocal is a national network of local leaders focused on building local power and promoting allyship and coordination across the progressive movement through in-person gatherings.


In November of 2017, organizers and leaders gathered at invite-only events across the country for a day of workshops, trainings, and network building.

ActLocal was developed in partnership between Wall-of-Us and the Action Group Network and is supported by a wide-ranging coalition of established and new progressive organizations including the Daily Kos, Center for American Progress, Assemble, Action Together Network, Together We Will, The People’s Supper, OFA, RISE Stronger and 50+ more.

The events are designed and led by local leaders representing on the ground organizations, chapters, and groups across the country, including LA Forward, 159 Georgia Together, One Arizona, The Greater New Orleans Housing Alliance, Wyoming Equality, Action for a Better Tomorrow, Southland Resistance, as well as local chapter leaders of the Women's March, RISE Stronger, OFA, Together We Will, Solidarity Sundays, and Indivisible.

For more information, or press/partnership inquiries, please reach out to contact@actlocal.network.
