In honor of 25 years, we're introducing the 25 Acts of DSACT -- 25 diverse and impactful ways that anyone can support DSACT, and help grow a bigger and better organization. We're charging each of you to fulfill at least three (or many more!) of the 25 Acts before the end of the year. We've specifically selected a variety of Acts that cover all different levels of time, social, and financial investment. I promise, there's something for everyone. 

Our actual 25th is in December, and at that time we'll celebrate all of our efforts, contributions, and successes together. We'll also be highlighting Acts between now and then, and the people taking on our challenge. In the meantime, it's time to rally the troops!
