In honor of 25 years in 2016, DSACT introduced the 25 Acts of DSACT -- 25 diverse and impactful ways that anyone can support DSACT, and help grow a bigger and better community. We charged members to fulfill at least three of the Acts before the end of the year. The Acts were selected to cover different levels of time, social, and financial investment. 

Though we're now pushing 27 years (!), members are encouraged to continue their 25 Acts of DSACT!
