This is the 25th 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.
When most people hear the word “activist,” they probably think of some guy standing on a soapbox yelling through a bullhorn. Activism is people marching and holding rallies.

It comes down to understanding the difference between tactics and strategy. In this episode of the Activism 101 Podcast, I talk about it.
