This is the second installment of a podcast following local activism efforts I am spearheading to address the surveillance state in Lexington, Ky. Through this series, you will get an inside look at boots-on-the-ground activism as it happens. The goal is to create a step-by-step how-to on tackling issues at the local level. You can access the other episodes HERE.

You’ve probably heard the Department of Homeland Security slogan “If you see something, say something.” Well, the same principle applies to local activism.

First you have to identify the problem – see something.

Next you have to let people know the problem exists so you have some allies in your efforts – say something.

In this installment of the Activist 101 Podcast, I explain exactly what I saw, and the first steps I took to get the word out.
