The objective of the Social Action Committee is to come to the aid of people in suffering, by providing them psychological or financial assistance. The vast majority of these people are referred to us by the social workers of the Casip-Cojasor Foundation.
Our activities take place throughout the year and every year around January we organize a lunch during which a prestigious guest is speaking. Our last guests were political scientist Frédéric Ancel (2020) and Professor Lionel Naccache (2019).
