EnAct's mission is to engage students and the broader Wellesley community in direct action to combat climate change and other local and global environmental issues. We commit to using a broad range of skills and approaches - including volunteering, raising awareness, engaging in conversations, protesting, working at intersections of environmentalism with other social justice movements, and on-campus and off-campus partnerships - to make the most of the power we have as individuals and as a community.
