Family Activism, Powerful Agent of Change

An eight-year-old girl sits on the shoulders of adult demonstrators in a protest march, holding a poster that says “We need to understand.” The image caption reads, “Family Activism can be a powerful agent of change.”

The American lifestyle is putting our kids’ and our grandkids’ futures at risk. Unless we take visible and effective steps to change that, our kids will soon be blaming us for contributing to the death of their world. And they won’t be wrong. To make lasting change, we must involve our children, make them aware that they share in the responsibility, prepare them to be action takers for life. Show them by example, yes, but also by getting them actively involved.
