Everyday Activism

Idea: Everyone should be an activist at least 1 hour a week.

Problem: Politics and activism feel so foreign to most people.

  • That’s what the elite want you to think.
  • The truth is anyone can become an activist and change minds and laws.
    • My personal mission is to inspire independent and idealistic people, especially from underrepresented communities, to take action and run for office.

Solution: Create a community and movement around Everyday Activism.

Anyone can speak truth to power. It only takes one moment to change the world.

I’ve always loved the long shot of the Tiananmen Square Tank Man protest.
He was up against so much more than four tanks.

Everyday Activism is on my list of solutions to The World’s Biggest Problems.

  • This idea is a work-in-progress. If you’d like to riff on it, hit me up @neilthanedar on Twitter!
