ACORN was the nations largest radical community organization working for social justice and the liberal/progressive political agenda of more government control and less individual freedom. Action NC appears to be the new front group for ACORN. From 1970 to its end in 2010, ACORN had grown to more than 175,000 member families organized in 850 neighborhood chapters in 75 cities across the US and in cities in Canada the Dominican Republic and Peru.

Barack Obama’s close ties and shared beliefs with ACORN, when he was a community organizer in Chicago, were instrumental in his 2008 election victory. ACORN shut down in 2010 after revelations that ACORN workers had encouraged illegal actions.
