According to the web site,
The Williams College Anti-War Community Taskforce (A.C.T.) is a peace activism group (comprised of students, faculty, and staff) that seeks to promote education and awareness on campus regarding the current U.S/Iraq situation. Through lectures, debates, petitions, poster campaigns, and travel to organized protests we hope to increase dialogue among the student body regarding War in Iraq and spread the reasons for which we oppose this War.

Founded in autumn 2002, the group was among the largest and most active political activism groups that year.
