The ENACT: Educational Network for Active Civic Transformation is a national program engaging undergraduates at colleges and universities in state-level legislative change by learning to work with legislators, staffers, and community organizations to advance policy. It is becoming a major voice in addressing challenges to American democracy by engaging young people around the country in civic activism built on knowledge, cooperation, justice and integrity.
• Workshop: ENACT launched with a workshop at Brandeis University in
May 2016. Under the leadership of the program’s academic director, ENACT Fellows shared ideas and
work on course development.
• Courses: In ENACT courses students learn about participating in the legislative and advocacy process at the state level, with a substantial hands-on component in which they engage directly in that process, as in the “Advocacy for Policy Change” course at Brandeis.
• Online Network: The ENACT Network is a national in-person and online network of students, faculty, activists and legislators. It is a strategic and information hub for state-level players that enables them to connect with counterparts throughout the country.
