The mission of A Call to Action Oconee (ACTA) is to help reduce the incidents of domestic violence in South Carolina, beginning with Oconee County.
We believe that in order to change the incidence of domestic violence, 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!
