Becoming an Activist

Activism is much more than marching and protesting in the streets. Making the change you want to see in the world means finding the perfect match between your gifts and the needs of the world.

Join us for a workshop focused on finding your personal activism path. Using activities, exercises, and feedback you will

-      Find your passion for activism.

-      Identify the skills and knowledge you have for making change.

-      Understand your motivation and how it affects your activism.

-      Find activism that makes an impact on your cause.
