Description

Calls for collective action against some of the most pressing issues we face today have never been more resounding. Cross-cultural coordination of initiatives against environmental issues, advocacy for LGBTQ rights, and civic engagement are all hot topics in contemporary social discourse. Yet, how are grassroots change-makers and elected officials each managing diversity?
