Understanding = Protection
Why do we say that understanding equals protection for activists?
Legal defense, demonstrations, writing letters, community support and so much more are necessary to protect activists (which is why we’re compiling this Resource List). But protecting activists is an uphill struggle unless we create a climate of understanding, care and empathy for activists and activism.
Protect Our Activists is on a quest to explore activist culture and the activist experience, to expand our understanding of what it means, and what it takes, to be an activist.
