Shining Stone Community Action (SSCA; Chinese: 社区参与行动) is a Beijing-based non-profit organization whose mission is to engage citizens in public decision making. The organization works in accordance with the International Association for Public Participation's (IAP2) seven core values for the practice of public participation. The organization acts on the local level and throughout China to promote sustainable participatory governance reforms with the intention of making more exceptional, democratic, and efficient decisions. For that reason, SSCA has adopted western methods of public participation (for example, open space, community organizing, or mediation) in China. The NGO was founded in 2002; the co-founder and president is Song Qinghua.
The NGO closely cooperates with national and foreign foundations including Canadian Harmony Foundation, German Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung, Chinese Vantone Foundation, and American Ford Foundation. The organization also carries out pilot projects and gives trainings on behalf of Chinese authorities (e.g. Chinese Ministry of Civil Affairs and Beijing Hepingli Sub-District). The American Ford Foundation has supported SCCA's mission and activities since the founding of the NPO in 2002.
