ACS has been advocating on behalf of Howard County’s nonprofit human and social service, cultural, environmental and faith-based organizations and the individuals and families that they serve since 1963. Our advocacy includes community wide education, bringing together decision makers to resolve issues, giving testimony before elected officials, and building partnerships to achieve advocacy goals. During election years, we host candidate forums, often in collaboration with the League of Women Voters, to build relationships with candidates and our members and educate them about our priorities.

Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved with our advocacy work.
