Becoming activist. I like the fact that you use ing. It doesn’t end. It just doesn’t. You keep learning about new issues and you keep on trying to – part of being an activist, I’d say, even though it is broadly defined, it’s about seeing how different issues are connected to each other. And that is how you form a movement. Not just with your specific one issue. Like, for example, environmental advocacy, or environmental justice. But how that relates to feminism, for example. Or like, migrant justice. I don’t know, it’s a never-ending process. What does it mean? It’s, like how do you become an activist?
