37 Days of Activism

art-of-activism-logoYou wanted to know what role you would have played in the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s? Now’s your time to find out.

You were shocked by the outcome of the U.S. Presidential election, and the aftermath of racial violence.

You didn’t know this kind of racism still existed in the U.S.

You don’t know whether to wear a safety pin to show you’re an ally, or not.

People are shaming you for not knowing, not acting, not doing the right things.

It’s all confusing and heart-sickening. But your heart is in the right place, and you need encouragement and ideas, not shame. You need to educate yourself, and quickly. You need to learn what right helpfulness is, and how to take action that will be effective and useful.

This 37-day online course is created to provide 1-2 actions per day that you can accomplish, learn from, invite others to do, in order to fight for social justice in an administration whose appointments thus far look far from inclusive and more intent on stripping the human rights of many. It’s time to take action. We cannot remain complacent or believe that someone else will do the heavy lifting.

This course will be taught by author and activist, Patti Digh. You can read about her background in this arena here and here.

Starting on November 25, the day after Thanksgiving, you’ll receive one email per day for 37 days, with suggested actions for that day. Each day will have two activities: 1) Learning; and 2) Doing.

You’ll have the opportunity to respond to the prompts in an online classroom, where everyone in the course can share thoughts, suggestions, additional actions, and more.

The cost is $1 per day, for a total of $37.00. This will help cover the administration of the course, its development, and the software needed to host the course.

It’s time to take action. You wanted to know what role you would have played in the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s? Now’s your time to find out.
