Taking Action

Basics to Advocacy

Anyone can be an activist. No matter your gender, race, ethnic or cultural background, socioeconomic status, career, educational experience, sexual orientation or any ability. The only thing that is required of an activist is a passion and drive. Be it designing a poster, making a zine, writing a letter to the editor, lobbying at your nearest government facility, or branching out to other advocacy communities, there is a medium for everyone’s voices to be heard. Please read the articles below about how to be more involved in the activist community, and to take action for yourself!
