ACT Pasadena and  Pasadena Arroyo Democratic Club

ACT: Over 50 years of progressive

politics and Democratic activism

Making a difference together!

ACT is a grass-roots political action group centered in the greater Pasadena, arroyo and foothills areas.  We are one of the oldest (and most effective!) progressive voices in the region.   ACT is officially non-partisan, but most members are Democrats — so we have a sister organization (the Pasadena Arroyo Democratic Club) to promote activism within the Democratic Party.  Most members belong to both groups  Our joint focus is working together for progressive change at the community, state, and national levels.  


Issues and circumstances change with time but our vision does not: We believe in making a difference by winning elections and holding winners accountable.  That makes ACT a great way to meet other politically engaged people -- activists, officeholders, future candidates -- and to get better informed about today’s key issues.  If making a difference is your goal, you belong in ACT and PADC!
