04.24.2018 Ellevate Network • How to Effect Change in the World Today: A Panel Discussion

Do you want to see your community change for the good? Are you eager to contribute? Do you know that you already have what you need to stand up? Join us as we explore how you can effect real change. Most people, in times of transition and turmoil, believe themselves to be good people but don’t know how to use the resources they currently have to stand up for what they believe in. What if you don’t work in media? Don’t feel like you know enough about politics to be comfortable calling your representative or voting? What if you see subversive, deeply seeded cultural injustices every day but don’t know how to change them? What if you feel powerless? At Ellevate Network, we’re on a mission to Redefine Activism. We want you to know that you already have what you need to stand up for what’s right.
