PATH: People Acting Together in Howard
Since 2006, PATH has led the fight toward broad-based equity, diversity, and inclusion in Howard County, Maryland
Who We Are
PATH is a multi-racial, multi-faith, non-partisan residents’ organization, rooted in local congregations and organizations. Our dues-paying member institutions include over 20,000 Howard County residents, and represent the diversity, hope, and dreams of our community.
What We Do
The work of PATH begins with listening to members of our communities, in one-on-one and small group settings. Through these relationships, we challenge each other to imagine the change we want to see in our own communities.
We set daring goals and create bold strategies on the most important issues facing communities in Howard County and the nation. We train public leaders to take specific and targeted action on a range of issues.
We connect groups of organized people and organized money to expand our power and impact. Together, we bring the world as it is a little bit closer to the world as it should be, in concrete ways.
→ High quality, affordable healthcare for some of the county’s most vulnerable residents (Healthy Howard)
→ Workforce development and environmental jobs for youth and young adults (READY).
→ Equity in public schools through resources, programs, and staff
→ More affordable housing in downtown Columbia
→ Better transportation systems for wellness, working people, and young adults
→ Protection of affordable housing for mobile home owners (Read more)
