    ACORN International
    Meet our affiliates


ACORN International affiliates share an approach to taking back what is ours. We share key principles: always organize the unorganized, strive for self-sufficiency, co-ordinated autonomy between local groups, issues as vehicles for building power, taking action to secure wins, and the organization belongs to its members.
