This is the seventh 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.
Activism is a team sport.
One way to ensure your activism efforts will fail is to try to go it alone. You need to build a strong coalition.
In this episode of the Activism 101 podcast, I talk about my early efforts to build both a network of individuals who will share the workload and a coalition of organizations that will join the fight. I also offer some advice about working with groups that may not completely share your ideological outlook.
