Arise Citizens’ Policy Project / Alabama Arise

Alabama Arise’s mission is to promote state and national policies that improve the lives of low-income Alabamians.

Arise Citizens’ Policy Project  (ACPP)  is a statewide nonprofit, nonpartisan coalition of 150 congregations and community groups and hundreds of individuals united in their belief that low-income people are suffering because of state policy decisions. Through ACPP, groups and individuals join together to promote state policies to improve the lives of low-income Alabamians. In a state that by many measures is the worst place for poor people to live in the United States, ACPP believes acts of charity are vital, but they are not enough; we must work to improve harmful state policies. ACPP provides a structure in which Alabamians can engage in public debates with the goal of improving the welfare of all Alabamians.

ACPP’s sister organization, Alabama Arise, is a 501(c)(4) advocacy organization, formed in 1988, with the same membership.
