What is your definition of activism?

Eric Shuford

In my opinion, activism is when you are trying to bring political or social change. What is political change? According to study.com, political change is a normal function of internal and external politics. Rulers will be voted out, retire, or die while in power, and the new leader will make changes. Some ways to be politically active is to:

  1. Know your local legislators and politicians.
  2. Know an issue you care about and pursue it.
  3. Attend meetings that concern your local government. Like: Town hall meeting and City council meeting because they effect your way of life.
  4. Get active in your local PTA and go to meetings.
  5. Mobilize people together and get attention on social media like Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.
