"...I always think that activism needs introverts because we're really good at intimate activism. So we're good at slow activism, and we're really good at intimate activism, and if this year has told us anything, it's told us that we need to, when we're engaging power holders, we need to engage them by listening to people we disagree with, by building bridges not walls --walls or wars -- and by being critical friends, not aggressive enemies."
What do you think about Sarah Corbett's talk and the role introverts play in Activism? As someone who doesn't necessarily consider myself an introvert, I had to think about the activist engagements I have been in and if I afforded a space for introverts to participate. Are you an introvert engaged in Activism? How do you get "heard" and what do you do to recharge?
