Since the rise of community activism in large urban areas during the 20th century, a number of large scale organizations have sought to create an umbrella network to support these various advocacy and outreach efforts. One such organization is the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) which is inspired by the struggle for social justice and creating stronger communities. On the group's website, visitors interested in these ideas (either from a pragmatic or academic standpoint) can learn about ACORN's current work and accomplishments, along with reading a detailed history of the organization written by Professor Dan Russell of Springfield College. Some visitors may also want to learn about ACORN's International programs, which operate in Peru, the Dominican Republic, Canada, and Mexico. Visitors will also want to take a look at the group's free newsletter and the newsletter archives, which date back to 2003.
