For over 30 years, PACT has helped everyday people win extraordinary victories for our community, not by speaking for them, but by teaching them how to speak, act, and engage in the public arena for themselves.
Thousands of PACT-trained, volunteer community leaders have worked together across ethnic, religious, and socio-economic lines to create innovative and effective public policies that have improved the lives of hundreds of thousands of people throughout Santa Clara County.
For example, PACT:
• Co-founded the historic Santa Clara County Children’s Health Initiative (CHI), which made our county the first in the country to provide access to health insurance to all children. It is now a model for communities around the state and nation. Nearly 150,000 children have affordable, quality health care through CHI.
• Has initiated and helps to create excellent, new public schools of choice in downtown and East San Jose to close the achievement gap. PACT’s goal is that all children, regardless of socio-economic background, receive a high-quality education with a path for success in college and life
• Initiated the City of San Jose's model after-school and anti-gang programs, including more than 200 homework centers, making San Jose one of the most youth-friendly and safest big cities in the country.
