Have you stood up to fight for social or environmental justice? Have you been a part of a political movement? If you have a story - however big - we'd love to hear it! Either draw, write, or record a response to any of the questions below. If you would like your story illustrated, write 'To be illustrated' in the title of the message, and I'll draw your story.
Alternatively - or if you just want to get in touch, - email: werenotpowerless @ gmail.com
1. What is your 'activism'?
2. Tell a short story that depicts what inspired you to get involved with this issue?
Was there a particular moment, or a particular thing that made you feel like you could not look on from the sidelines any more? Or, if there wasn’t a specific moment, could you turn your motivation into a story of some kind- how did it build, what inspired you?
3. Tell a story about the moments when you have felt vulnerable/doubtful as a campaigner?
4. In these times how do you stay driven? What drives you to continue fighting?
Has something that happened that made you continue – or think ‘yes – I’m doing the right thing.
5. Could you tell a simple story that encapsulates your dream of a future scenario?
You don’t have to have a concept of how you want the world to be. A simple example might be: ‘A woman walks down the street, she is wearing whatever she wants to wear. She does not feel threatened, or harassed. She never has.’
