This Is What Democracy Looks LikeWeek 2 The Activists How do individuals transform tragedy into a cause? How does a single good deed become a movement? In this session, we will examine the ways activists fight for change — and the reasons they succeed or fail. Civic and political activism are at the heart of my own life before I was an elected official, I was a student activist challenging injustice in my community. As an elected official and candidate, I sought to lift up voices I felt were not being heard. Together, we will explore the ways activism is changing — for example, how social media has amplified everyone’s voice — and the ways it has held constant.
