Anne Arundel Connecting Together

Anne Arundel Connecting Together (ACT) Leaders at inaugural action
 
After two years of listening to communities, congregations and individuals, including 2,800 one-on-one conversations, over 1,100 leaders from Anne Arundel County packed First Christian Community Church for an inaugural action to commit to working together to make Anne Arundel a better place for everyone to live. Six broad issues were identified as priorities for the newest IAF organization, Anne Arundel Connecting Together (ACT):
 
1. Affordable Housing
2. Safe and Effective Schools
3. Efficient and useful Public Transportation
4. Freedom from Addiction and Mental Health Challenges
5. Just and Fair Immigration Policies
6. Gun Violence Reduction and Safety in our Communities
 
ACT asked candidates for county council, state’s attorney and county executive in attendance if they would pledge to work with and meet regularly with ACT, and all but one agreed.
