St. Anthony is a proud member and participant in MACG (Metropolitan Alliance for the Common Good),
MACG is an alliance of faith, labor, health education and community organizations dedicated to building a base of everyday civic leaders to effectively stand for change they want to see in their communities.
MACG is a multi-issue organization. The issues we work on change from year to year, arising directly from the concerns of the people in our member organizations, lifted up through shared stories. We cross economic, faith and neighborhood lines to find common ground and act on our values. For over fifteen years, MACG's civic leaders have worked to make neighborhoods safer, promote accessible and affordable health care and housing, and increase job opportunities and family wages, among other issues.
While collective action is a critical part of what we do, MACG’s primary work is leadership development to equip members to be effective, active, civic leaders. We have trained over 2000 people since our founding in 2002.
MACG is non-partisan and non-profit, supported by the dues of our member organizations, individual donors, and foundation grants.
