Activating Citizen Involvement

Established in 1976, our mission is to improve the quality of life of all inhabitants of the State of Indiana, achieved through conducting research, public education and development efforts to conserve natural resources, protect the environment and provide affordable access to essential human services.

The sister organization of CACEF is the Citizens Action Coalition, which works on many of the same initiatives through a focus on initiating, facilitating and coordinating citizen action and advocacy.
