Team Meeting Times

Join one of our Action Committees!

Some of our most important work is done by people like you, who decide to join an action committee and participate directly in our projects and campaigns. You can get involved just a little – or a lot. Call us, drop by the office, or drop in on a meeting. You don't need to be an expert - everyone is welcome!

All meetings take place at the EAC headquarters at 2705 Fern Lane, unless otherwise specified.
