AFSC's Greg Coleridge speaks at a worke'r rights rally in Ohio.

In Akron, AFSC educates and organizes residents of Northeast Ohio around issues of economic and political justice, advocating for:

  • The national Move to Amend proposed constitutional amendment to abolish corporate “personhood” and money as speech
  • Sane and humane federal, state, and local budget priorities and tax policies
  • Creating and nurturing local economic alternatives, like the Akron Time Bank

In this work to change culture, laws, and the U.S. Constitution, AFSC holds forums, workshops, community meetings, mass actions, citizen petition campaigns, and meetings with public officials.
