MissionThe mission of the ACCE Institute is to improve the lives of California's traditionally underserved residents, including communities of color, low-income and working families, and the undocumented population, by carrying out work that fosters deep, indigenous leadership development, policy creation, robust civic participation, and broad community empowerment.
What We DoAt ACCE Institute we are committed to helping community members unpack and tackle the issues that most negatively impact their lives -especially as they help lead to economic, racial and social justice.
We organize with California's poor and working class families and communities of color to help them research the root causes of social ills.
The residents then work together to address their issues and develop policy that would work toward eradicating the problems they see.
They ensure that those affected have the skills needed to gain the attention of elected officials and other decision makers and move their agenda for community improvement forward.
