Grassroots Action is a membership organization of concerned citizens in and around Lawrence, Kansas, who wish to pursue a high-level, sustainable, and equitable quality of life for citizens of Lawrence and the surrounding region by means of progressive advocacy.

We believe stable and healthy communities by definition provide people with equal opportunity to be full participants in the economy, do not generate wealth for some at the expense of others, and assure that health and housing for everyone at the very least meets humane minimum standards.

We believe that social and economic justice are irrevocably linked, and that the free exchange of ideas through open communications is essential to both.

We believe that maintenance of stable communities is an ongoing responsibility of its citizens and requires that we be informed, involved, adaptable, and vigilant.

We believe that progressive advocacy means supporting workers, farmers, families, neighborhoods and local merchants.
