Artivism: The Modern-Day, Non-Violent Activism

I became an activist because of the injustice I see every day in the world we live in and my disbelief that our government is not ready to create favorable policies for people like myself (members of the LGBTQ community) to exist. Many people like me choose to fight injustice not because were selected to or trained to be the change agents in our generation; rather, we sometimes wonder how we come to fill these shoes. Mostly, it’s a result of a combination of life experiences, the exposure to new views, or an awakening to the reality of the injustice happening around us.
