Who We Serve

The Collective Action Lab principally serves communities and the people and the organizations within them. To effectively advance community-level change,  we support multi-perspective, multi-sector initiatives that are led by and include local residents, elected officials, nonprofit organizations, communities of faith, health and long term care providers, businesses, community-based organizations, and many others.  Example initiatives and partners in our three levels of work are described below.
