A Call to Action Oconee is a community campaign against domestic abuse.  We were birthed out of a heart for those in our community who were living with abuse and our desire to eradicate all types of abuse from our county and state. 

   The mission of A Call to Action Oconee (ACTA) is to help reduce domestic abuse in South Carolina, beginning with Oconee County, then spreading to surrounding counties.

   We believe that in order to change the incidence of domestic abuse, we must first change the attitude of the entire community.  We must believe that it IS a problem, that it is OUR problem and that we can ALL do something to create a positive change!

Well, another race is in the books!  Thank you to all who ran, volunteered and helped get the word out!   We are already looking forward to next year and a few improvements!  Please click on the link below for race results.
