Advocates for Community Transformation
Email the Coordinators
The Advocates for Community Transformation (ACT) program strives to amplify the voices of Brandeis and Waltham community members, and work alongside them to help ensure their needs are met and their community initiatives have the resources they need. We will pursue systemic change through holding action events, increasing awareness of issues on campus and in the community, and empowering community members to enact positive change in both our university and local community. ACT is the newest and 20th Waltham Group program, and was founded in Spring of 2021 to educate, advocate, and create action towards systemic change on our campus and in our communities.
