Be An Advocate

Safety Canvassing

Safety canvassing through West and South Dallas are a great way for Act to build relationships with residents and hear their stories. These family-friendly events give volunteers the opportunity to walk through communities that Act serves and gather vital information for our casework and neighbors.

We have two safety canvassing opportunities on May 18th. Click below to register!

Legal Advocate

Act’s vision is for West Dallas residents to be liberated from dangerous drug houses, with as peaceful of a resolution as possible, and free our residents from the oppression of crime and urban blight. Volunteer lawyers are the way we achieve this. Each case is assigned a lawyer to take legal action on behalf of the concerned residents. It is imperative that we have lawyers who will come alongside us in our work to fight for justice.


Our volunteer lawyers represent some of Dallas’ best law firms. Collectively through Act, they have donated over $2 million in legal support and have provided over 200 wills to West Dallas residents to prevent current homes from harboring dangerous crime in the future.

Financial Advocate

Act relies on the generosity of others to serve the community’s needs. The gifts of individuals and foundations allow us to expand our mission neighborhood by neighborhood. The result is a community transformed. Act needs brave men and women to be advocates for justice along with us in our city. Please consider joining us in our work as a financial advocate and changing the lives of inner-city residents.
