Taking the Inner Activist

| April 13, 2012

Hey, Rabble Rousers!

I'll be on Gabriola Island in beautiful B.C. over the next few days, taking a course called The Inner Activist. The module I'm doing is called 'Building Conscious Use of Power' and i'm really looking forward to it.

But what use is training and education if you don't share? Like Maya Angelou said:

"When you learn, teach, when you get, give."

That's why I'll be video blogging each day, talking about what I'm learning during this course. I hope you will find it interesting and maybe even useful for your own struggles. Bear with me while I video blog 'cause that too is a learning experience for me. Usually, I'm on the OTHER end of the camera.

Thanks to my sisters and brothers in CUPE 1979 for sending me to this course!

in solidarity, Aalya
