What is a Community of Action?

A Community of Action (CoA) is aimed at creating social movements, volunteering campaigns and real-world change. A Community of Action is built on the belief that when people come together, they can accomplish much more!

This type of community makes it possible for members to connect with people who share their goals, find opportunities to volunteer, contribute to a cause, help others and participate in social, civic or political initiatives.
