Starting With Me

From: Educating for Action


This chapter focuses on how to use your daily activities to create a more just and ethical world. The chapter stresses the benefits of using your everyday life as a means to your politics. While I do on occasion make passing reference to the limitations of this technique, I definitely believe that “everyday activism” is a great place to start — it’s personal, political, and effective.
