Activism

I define activism as:
1) Frontline: Getting out on the street and in the community and educating folks on ideas and actions of a passionate interest.
Frontline to me is rallies, picketing, and peaceful assembly. Street level activism/warrior activism doesn't mean violence but those passionate, courageous and able-bodied enough
to present at the "frontline", or "where the action is".

2) Promotion/Awareness: Getting the word out via flyers and banners, assisting frontliners with supplies, social media promotion.

3) Rootwork: Promoting ideas and concepts in an organic and unassertive way. Integration by lifestyle and education.

As said, these are my definitions. It's the way I perceive activism. Everyone has their own way, limits and ideas.
I consider any level of activism as grassroots. I am a rootwork activist.
My passions include environmental protection, ecological sustainabilty, artistic freedom, animal compassion, food justice and CSA, women's issues, LGBTQ, civil and native rights.
I attempt to educate, integrate and inspire by lifestyle and educating others of like spirit through my art, writings and majikal processes.
Some consider what I do as "passive activism" and that's ok. It's still me doing what I can about the issues I am passionate about and that's all that matters.
Some are in the canopy, some are on the forest floor; I'm at the roots. <3

I believe change is acheived through compassionate, heart-felt, integrative and organic process. It must be something that comes with understanding and personal connection,
provide functionality and practicality without force, and proven to be an affective alternative to a social or perceived norm.
-It has to breathe.
-It cannot threaten.
-It has to be wanted.
-It has to be functional.

"So often activism is based on what we are against, what we don't like, what we don't want. And yet we manifest what we focus on. And so we are manifesting yet ever more
of what we don't want, what we don't like, what we want to change; so for me, activism is about a spiritual practice as a way of life...and I realized I didn't climb the tree because
I was angry at the corporations and the government; I climbed the tree because when I fell in love with the redwoods, I fell in love with the world. So it is my feeling of 'connection'
that drives me, instead of my anger and feelings of being disconnected." ~Julia Butterfly Hill
