“Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.”
— William James

Today’s Excerpt:

Here are five possible steps to get started with activism:

  1. Awareness: Watch a film, read a book, follow the news
  2. Interest: Do deeper research, hear stories
  3. Engagement: Volunteer, donate
  4. Development: Connect with other people who share this interest
  5. Advocacy: Lead, run for office


  • Are there any problems or concerns in your community you would like to see change? (Could be bullying at school, littering in the park, animals that need care, etc.)
  • If you had the power to do anything, how would you change that problem in your community?
  • What is one thing you could do to make a small change in that area?
