When it comes to fighting back against Trump, there are so many issues it may be hard to figure out what to focus on first. Here’s my take:
Choose the issue or issues that have the following attributes, specifically for you:
- You are passionate about the issue.
- You have applicable knowledge or skills.
- You know or can find people to help you.
These are more important than whether it’s the biggest issue or the one generating the biggest controversy, or even the worst effects.
If you have knowledge and passion about an issue, and can find ways to connect with other like-minded activists, you can become an effective advocate. If not, you risk wasting time and energy that you would more effectively invest elsewhere.
