Civic Engagement and Leadership Development
The club advocates for equity for those of all ages and special needs in the programs and services at De Anza College.

One of the club's faculty advisers, Tom Beggs, commented, "The club's presence in the De Anza community and throughout the state has been a force for positive change for people with disabilities."
