What is Activism?

The Activism Department oversees all activism initiatives in the Ohio River Valley.  Activism is what makes JSA an incredible and influential organization. JSA allows students to build and express their beliefs, yet, activism allows students to apply those beliefs to the betterment of their communities. From political to social activism, JSA assists students in making a difference in their communities and their world. Activism is what makes JSA truly vital to the future of our country, and we constantly strive to fulfill our goal of across-the-board activism from every JSA member.
