Center for Transformative Action

We are a catalyst for
positive social change.

The Center for Transformative Action (CTA) supports change makers in creating communities that are ecologically sound, socially just and work for everyone. Their bold actions inspire and animate the heart toward common good.

CTA is an independent 501(c)3 organization affiliated with Cornell University since 1971.

CTA celebrates our joys, but they’re also there to teach and help us with the challenges.
