Action In Montgomery (AIM) is a non-partisan alliance of 25 congregations and neighborhood organizations in Montgomery County representing over 55,000 adults. AIM’s primary goal is to develop local leadership to organize the people power to create a more just county. We strive to hold both public and private power holders responsible for their public responsibilities, as well as initiate actions of our own to solve community and economic problems. AIM began in 1998 when clergy and lay leaders came together to discuss how to address the growing pressures on families in their congregations.

AIM is multi-issue. The issues we work on come from within our institutions, from the concerns of the people. We cross neighborhood, racial, economic and faith lines to find common ground and act on our religious and democratic values.
AIM is affiliated with the Industrial Areas Foundation (link: www.industrialareasfoundation.org), the nation’s first and largest network of multi-faith coalitions and draws on their seven decades of experience of winning tough battles across the nation. Our 17 member organizations in the east have a deep grassroots presence in the political and financial power centers in the United States. There are 65 IAF affiliates in the United States, England, Germany and Canada.
