The are many ways to get involved with CUFA! We work on a variety of issues and are always looking for new members and leaders. We have opportunities for volunteering one time, or on a recurring basis. There are also intern positions available. Please contact us for more information.

Become a CUFA member

Communities United for Action is a membership organization. Through our membership, we build a powerful organization that can address issues that impact our lives.  CUFA members are  individuals, community councils, churches, block clubs and community organizations. Members get  voting privileges at the  CUFA Congress and help set the priorities for the organization.

By becoming a CUFA member, you will have the opportunity to develop your leadership skills through creating solutions to community problems, holding public officials accountable for neighborhood needs, and helping to organize public meetings. Also, there is a yearly opportunity to participate in a grassroots organizing trip to Washington D.C. with our national group, People’s Action. You will have an opportunity to fight for improved environmental standards for new businesses in over-burdened Cincinnati neighborhoods, support homeownership opportunities for people of all incomes and races by fighting predatory lending and for public support for low-income homeownership opportunities, and combat the foreclosure crisis by developing solutions for vacant and foreclosed properties.

An individual membership is $10 annually. Institutional membership dues vary. Click here to pay your membership dues online and to sign up as a member! 

OR, print and mail a membership form along with your $10 dues.
