Today we face a world fraught with political, environmental, and social change. It’s in times like this, that humanity seeks out leaders to turn to -- who inspire us to muster the courage to speak out and take action.
Throughout history, from the likes of Martin Luther King Jr. , Nelson Mandela, Harriet Tubbman and Ghandi -- Activism has played a major role in ending slavery, challenging dictatorships, combatting racism, protecting the environment, promoting gender equality, and many other important issues. And It’s through the heroic persistence of activists, that we’ve always demonstrated the capacity to mobilize masses of ordinary people to accomplish extraordinary, seemingly impossible things.
It’s in this spirit that we are building Axtivist, a global community committed to championing the efforts of today’s activists striving to help shape a better world across the issue spectrum of human rights, gun violence, racism, climate change and inequality.
Follow us on our journey as we profile these heroes on the front lines and their messages, so that we all can participate in pushing forth a better more resilient world. . “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.”
---- Margaret Mead
