The Justice, Education, and Action Committee (JEAC) addresses issues of systemic change through focused education and action. The program is structured around a Steering Committee, which sets the overall direction of JEAC, and Working Groups, which design efforts around specific justice issues. The goal of the program is to increase communication about social justice concerns and to invite all community members to be involved in systemic change in some way.
