The ACCE Institute works with tenants to develop meaningful housing policy solutions that protect tenants and homeowners from real estate special interest greed. Our year-round integrated voter engagement model is designed to increase turn-out in lower income communities of color.

A donation to the ACCE Institute is an investment in individual and systemic transformation. Every dollar we receive is put to work in the fight to create an equitable, inclusive, and just California. Your donation will help provide research, training, and education in support of powerful grassroots leadership.


The mission of the ACCE Institute is to improve the lives of California's traditionally underserved residents, including communities of color, low-income and working families, and the undocumented population, by carrying out work that fosters deep, indigenous leadership development, policy creation, robust civic participation, and broad community empowerment.


Biggest need is unrestricted funds.

ACCE is working on a local campaign to engage community residents in the creation of local policies and programs that will shape housing availability, quality, and affordability over the next decade.

A part-time organizer will be working throughout the six months to door-knocking/phone banking for education on COVID protections and navigating the complex programs, and follow-up to develop leaders who will in turn, engage to others in their neighborhoods. This organizer will work on outreach four hours a day, 16 days a month over the course of six months.

Sacramento ACCE host monthly Tenant Legal clinics and Know Your Rights Training to our serve low-income, and unserved communities. Our growing collaborative membership of black and brown community members is working on purchasing enough tablets for our tablet loan program to connect underserved residents with technology.

Equity Statement

ACCE is a POC-led organization with a powerful multi-racial team, made stronger by our ability to collaborate and leverage our diversity across gender, age, upbringing, education, talent, and life experience. We are committed to high standards, high impact, and working with deep respect for one another, our members, and our partners.

As a multi-issue organization, ACCE is helping community members fight for racial equity, worker's rights and benefits, sustainable communities, access to affordable housing, a strong safety net system, and progressive revenue to fund the services and programs we all rely upon.
