We tend to think about activism in terms of protests, marches, speeches, lobbying to make better laws, YouTube videos, and podcasts. Those things are all great and important. But our special guest thinks there's lots of important activism that happens in our everyday conversations with our coworkers, families, and peers. After this talk, you'll be better equipped to change hearts and minds in your everyday interactions with those around you. You'll feel more empowered to make a difference, even if the flashier side of activism isn't your thing.
