Q: What is the Action Group Network?

ACTION GROUP NETWORK was formed in response to the election of 2016 to motivate and facilitate a culture of action and civic engagement through local in-person gatherings. AGN works to support action groups of all sizes and issue focuses. Action Group Network believes strongly in the importance of connecting across silos and boundaries. We encourage and support newly formed groups to connect to established activists and organizations. Please see our mission page for more.
