Page: Campaign Profile - ACORN

ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now)

A large association of organizations representing low and moderate income families, ACORN has been at the forefront of supporting both city and university living wage campaigns. They have also been leaders in efforts to improve healthcare, housing, and worker's rights, as well as other campaigns.

Interview: Jen Kern - director, Living Wage Resource Center

ACORN's Living Wage Resource Center: probably the best overall website on the living wage. Lots of information on both college and city campaigns.
Campus Living Wage Campaign: lots of great information on university campaigns, although it hasn't been updated in awhile.
