TAKE ACTION FOR A BETTER WORLD
Make a difference with activism and advocacy.
There’s a world of opportunity to act and speak
Activism is the vigorous campaigning to bring about political or social change. Think feet-in-the-streets: demonstrations, marches, protests, and nonviolent civil disobedience. This kind of work involves potential physical danger. Be prepared to be arrested. Train to resist violent instigations from police or the opposition. Always work in a group.
Advocacy is public support or recommendation of a particular cause or policy. It involves talking and writing. You can advocate online, write letters to the editor, have constructive conversations with people about your views, or volunteer your skills to help out with progressive local organizations.
