Revisioning Activism

In a time when millions of citizens have hit the streets to protest for or against something, in an attempt to bring change to the most critical issues facing humanity, David Bedrick invites us to look at a different kind of activism. “It’s an activism born more from the mind and heart than marching feet. It’s expressed not by a megaphone or signs but through teaching, writing, and facilitating dialogue. An activism that embraces our individual and collective shadows rather than opposing them or fighting against them.”
