My definition of activism probably isn’t the one you’re going to find in the dictionary. For me being an activist means that you are someone who takes consistent action, whether in front of the scenes or way behind the scenes, to advance a cause that you are passionate about. For me the size of the action isn’t the point, what matters is that you are regularly taking action to make a difference. That’s my definition of activism.

Omkari Williams

As an introvert who lives with depression and anxiety, most forms of traditional activism are uncomfortable, stressful, and sometimes terrifying. I know I’m not alone in feeling that way.

However, introverts are passionate people and crucial components of a social change ecosystem, and there is a lot we can do besides marching on the streets or participating in more intense and visible forms of direct action.

Increasingly, I do feel compelled to challenge myself to take actions outside my comfort zone. But events like this are very validating for those of us who sometimes feel that our introverted nature means that we cannot be “real” activists.

This workshop will give you a structure that you can use to build your personalized plan for consistent, meaningful activism. You’ll discover your activist archetype, connect to your origin story (what propelled you to want to make change), and figure out where you fit on the spectrum of activism.”
