Soma Action is a non-partisan group focused on positive, proactive effort during a time of unprecedentedly rapid change in our country.  While this group started as an association of concerned friends and neighbors in South Orange and Maplewood, we have quickly grown to hundreds in the local area.  We currently have no specific ties to other local or national groups, but there are a number of them listed below that share similar goals to our own.  Please avail yourself of this list if helpful and send any additional suggestions to info@somaaction.org for consideration/addition.
