Group in Focus: Act For Justice

  • See how members are using the group tool of the Gandhi-King Community!
  • Act For Justice: In its fourth year at Michigan State University, this student organization uses the groups feature for discussions and announcements about their work fusing activism & theater
  • Closing the Gap Between Past & Present: U.S. history teachers who met during a 2008 tour of the Freedom Struggle in the South use the groups feature to keep in touch about education and activism

"The Gandhi King Community has been a great resource for Act for Justice. In addition to keeping members and fans of the theater troupe up-to-date, the Community has served as an amazing networking tool. With the group online, we have received messages from people all around the world who are doing similar work. It's been a joy to be able to share information back and forth with global colleagues for justice!"
