SSAC is a group of Long Island high school students coming together to encourage each other to get educated, involved and advocate for causes they believe in. SSAC was started by sisters Alexandra and Isabella Marks, along with teacher, Gennaro Fontano, at Paul D Schreiber high school in Port Washington, in the midst of the changing world and the nation’s conflict.
