National People's Action (NPA) is a network of grassroots organizations with a fierce reputation for direct action from across the country that work to advance a national economic and racial justice agenda. NPA has over 200 organizers working to unite everyday people in cities, towns, and rural communities throughout the United States through direct-action, house meetings and community organizing.
Geographically, NPA consists of 26 organizations across the country that reaches from farmers in rural Iowa to youth in the South Bronx. We have affiliate organizations in 14 states with remote network offices in Washington D.C., California, New York and a central office in Chicago. Our target population is not limited to a geographical area or regional group but rather works with and on behalf of hard working Americans everywhere to ensure an equitable and just democracy. Our population includes people from all walks of life despite differences in age, race, sexual orientation, income and culture. We aim for an inclusive open population in which people feel welcome and a part of grassroots power organizing.
NPA staffs and supports three local, state and national campaigns in support of economic and racial justice: Bank Accountability, Housing Justice, and Immigrant and Worker’s Rights. These campaigns strive for "wins" meaning tangible concrete changes for our communities through policy and consciousness of social injustices and the empowerment to fight them.
