Team Work Make The Dream Work!

The Community Action League

We are committed to excellence and the fair treatment of all!


The Community Action League (TCAL) is a community organization that helps low income communities in the Antelope Valley act to fight for their civil rights. Through individual meetings, door knocking, public meetings, and public policy advocacy, TCAL inspires the AV community into action in order to address the problems affecting low income families. We have addressed issues ranging from: section 8 recipient attacks, racial profiling by police and the incessant attacks against our youth in Criminal Justice and Educational system.

TCAL empowers our communities with the information, the principles, and resources needed to achieve health and stability for families, schools, businesses and communities.

Carol & Family

I just wanted to say thank you for being here for my family in their time of need. For you to come in and give your support without even knowing us before all of this shows that you are a very giving and caring person and I thank you for


I would like to thank T-CAL for all their help during an ordeal that happened on 12/16/10 that changed my life. I myself and my children have struggled dealing with being victims of harassment by the Housing Authority and the Sheriff's dept. T-CAL has been with us from the beginning helping us to fight for our rights as citizens in the Antelope Valley. We were glad to know we had the support of the community in our flight against injustice. T-CAL helped me to remain strong for my children and although my nightmare is not over, I feel relief in what has been accomplished. We now must continue to fight and show that we will not lye down when it comes to injustice but rise together as one. Thank You.
