Reflections on Collective Responsibility – David E Watters @ndawards
Over the course of this series of articles, it is my intention to explore the concepts of Leadership and Active Citizenship; how these can be differently defined; the limiting perception of “real” activists as opposed to supposed “slacktivists” and the unintentional exclusion and devaluing of certain types of people who fail to meet our definition of true activism.
READ PART ONE HERE:
In the second part of this series, we will look at various views regarding what it means to be an ‘active citizen’, from Civil Participation to Civic Engagement and beyond. We will explore how anti-oppression initiatives can be part of our everyday lives; how to nurture a broader range of strategies to allow for wider participation and finally how we can learn from each other so that collective cross-cause collaboration can accelerate progress for all minorities.
