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

Collective Vision

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.

Strategic Action

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.

Community Power

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.
