Differentiating your activist work is a surefire way to stay current and increase impact. Especially when you’re battling geographical barriers, sometimes effective organizing means getting creative. You can still contribute to international activist efforts from Canada, and merging artistic creations or popular cultural references is a way to make your direct action broader and more attractive.
