If you’ve ever signed a petition, you’re an activist.
If you’re ever given to a charity, you’re an activist.
If you’ve ever protested an injustice, you’re an activist.
If you’ve ever voted or refused to vote, you’re an activist.
If you’ve ever stood up for another human being, you’re an activist.
If you’ve ever taken a risk on someone else’s behalf, you’re an activist.

Wikipedia says, “Activism consists of intentional efforts to bring about social, political, economic, or environmental change.”

The scope of activism isn’t always by necessity a huge, organized effort.  Sometimes the scope is personal — closely, deeply, quietly personal.

Maybe you believe the effort you made was a small one, a thing of little or no significance or useful consequence.  But it mattered to someone, somewhere.
