With our hectic day to day life, it is all too easy to overlook a glaringly obvious fact – society has not dealt everyone the same fortunate hand that we have. Here at CA (Community Advocates), we refuse to ignore these injustices. We choose to take a stand, and we do our best to drive a change. This is the essence of CA.

Within this family, we are gathered into four Student Interest Groups, each championing a different cause – Lifeline (Healthcare), Empty Pocket (Poverty), Glassark (Environment) and Doveswarm (Migrant Workers). In each SIG, every member has the opportunity to unite with other like-minded individuals who strongly believe in tackling the same societal issues.
