Everyday activism can be small and still have a big impact, like with what I describe in this video.


Other forms of everyday activism include using the word “partner”, using the word “fat”, and calling out racist behavior firmly and without losing your temper. While being an ally can be scary, living in a world where you are not actively fighting for equality is ultimately far scarier.
