The Community Action Committee (CAC) helps Harvard students impact the political process by taking action in their community. To this end, CAC is the entry point for community service and direct action at the IOP. Our projects and activities work to empower our community and foster political participation and awareness. In addition, CAC aims to bridge the gap between the various programs of the Institute of Politics by building a stronger IOP community. We work along side other Harvard community service and political organizations and community leaders to offer great opportunities for students to learn about local politics and help their community in the process.
During Spring Break, the Community Aciton Committee is organizing a service trip to New Jersey to assit with Sandy relief. We are partnering with Helping Hands of New Jersey to help rebuild homes lost in the hurricane.
