This is the 26th 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.
As I’ve gotten into my activism efforts, I’ve discovered there is a definite ebb and flow. I’m crazy busy for a few days and then suddenly it seems like there isn’t anything to do. There’s a major buzz for a while and then it gets quiet.
During those down times, it’s easy to get discouraged and think things aren’t going well.
In this episode of the Activism 101 Podcast, I talk about the importance of playing a long game and not getting too caught up in the events of the moment. (Or lack thereof.)
