Community Engagement

CSUN Act Now (CAN)

 CSUN Act Now (CAN)

CSUN Act Now (CAN) is a series of events throughout the year to engage the CSUN community in the 2020 election and beyond. People often want to be more civically engaged, but aren’t sure where to start, and while voting in the election is very important, it is just one way to be engaged in 2020.

CSUN Act Now is a collaboration of students, faculty, and staff working to craft interactive activities, performances, lectures, seminars, and exhibits to help Matadors make informed decisions and participate meaningfully in their communities. These events will help Matadors establish and maintain communities of support on issues important to them, provide information and direction on getting involved in contemporary issues, and help create connections between civic engagement, classroom learning, and everyday practice.

Together, we CAN help the CSUN community make meaningful change on critical issues this year and in the future.
