The Alliance of Communities Transforming Syracuse (ACTS) is a grassroots, interfaith network advocating for social justice. We are voices striving for a more just and fair community that improves the quality of life for all in Onondaga County.


Our mission is to come together as people of faith and conscience in working to effect the systemic change necessary to rectify the social, economic, educational, and political inequities that exist in our community.
