How to Volunteer

This is an exciting time to volunteer with ACT as ACT commits itself to executing 50 projects over the next 5 years focused on advancing racial equity. We – the organization itself and its volunteers – will be on a learning journey together. There’s no doubt that we’ll make mistakes and take some wrong turns as we execute on this big, hairy, audacious goal, but with your help and commitment to learning and growing, as an individual and a community of volunteers, we will try to get it right. Thank you for your interest in joining us in this journey. To volunteer:
