I'll read WALKOUT and discuss the similarities and differences between acting as an advocate or an activist. We'll explore types of issues people stand up for, peaceful ways to approach every topic, and ways to become involved within their communities. There will be time for Q&A, and an invitation to participate in their own advocacy/activist campaign.
