FAQ's
Activism takes on many forms, including in-person protests as well as online demonstrations. Throughout American history, activists have called for social change through marches, sit-ins, strikes, and boycotts. Recently, the Black Lives Matter movement has progressed via a multi-pronged approach. This approach to social activism includes traditional actions like street rallies, in conjunction with more modern techniques which include community organizing via social media.
Activists identify injustices within our society and take action. By organizing with other community members, activists work to influence public opinion in order to spur change at the legislative, judicial, and executive levels of local, state, and federal governments. Modern day activists frequently harness media attention in order to raise awareness of these issues. While traditional sources (such as broadcast and print journalism) remain vital, in recent years technology has provided another set of tools. The advent of “Black Twitter' is a good example of activists utilizing new resources in order to draw attention to systemic racism.
Social justice is a concept of equality afforded to individuals within a society. It can be measured by the distribution of wealth, social privileges and opportunities for personal activity Social Justice activists believe it is a right, not a privilege. There are glaring examples of inequalities within institutions of finance, employment, eduction, healthcare, and housing. Social justice is the work necessary to close these gaps.
While most Americans are familiar with historical events such as Martin Luther King Jr’s “I Have A Dream” speech, there are numerous examples of social justice lectures. In recent years, addresses made by James Baldwin and Fannie Lou Hamer have circulated to larger audiences. Modern audiences have been moved by TED talks, commencement addresses, and sermons.
As the American poet Emma Lazarus wrote, “until we are all free, we are none of us free”. Many activists are not directly affected by the inequalities they are working to address. By spending their privilege, they are able to create a more just society for all. Booking a social justice speaker allows you to impact marginalized members of your community, campus, and workplace. You demonstrate allyship and empathy. Ultimately, these speakers can help you create a more equitable environment. There is a direct correlation between valuing social justice and improved sales, better employee retention, and improved public relations.
