The Voter Purge Project protects eligible voters against disenfranchisement by monitoring, reporting on, and organizing against wrongful voter purging.

Hospital Price Transparency and its Implementation in Arkansas, Louisiana, and Texas. Our study of hospitals’ data in Texas, Arkansas, and Louisiana, shows that the price transparency regulation falls far short of its stated goal of shedding light on healthcare costs. The study was sponsored by ACORN International, Labor Neighbor Research & Training Center, and Local 100 United Labor Unions.

The Nonprofit Hospitals Accountability Project is a partnership between ACORN International, United Labor Unions Local 100, and Labor Neighbor Research and Training Center. The report “Charity for Whom?” examines the lack of regulation around charity care from nonprofit hospitals.

The ACORN Tenants Union is a membership run and led organization of low-and-moderate income renters and community residents dedicated to building enough power through collective organization and direct action to protect and advance the interests of tenants.
