What does “activism” mean and how does it look in 2020? How will it evolve over the next twenty years as the world continues to change? In recent years, movements have formed around issues ranging from Black Lives Matter to vaccines, LGBTQIA rights to climate change, and prayer in schools to the nation’s divided stance on how to tackle the novel Coronavirus.
These fully customizable multi-narrative tours explore the motives and methods of collective action – demonstrations, online campaigns, advocacy organizations – across the United the States. Meet the activists and change-makers on the front lines of the nation’s most polarizing struggles. Examine the tenets of “peaceful” or “non-violent” activism. Hear personal stories from those who have sacrificed for the causes they care about most, and draw links between social movements in the United States and activists around the world.
