It’s a new year and we’re leaving a brutal year behind and entering in to one with great challenges. It doesn’t look like the world is going to change so quickly. We are needed to create a world where everyone can live in freedom and dignity. This episode of the Hey Changemaker! is packed with advice from changemakers to help you take action and build solidarity.
“The only thing that will bring us out of hopelessness is taking action and being in solidarity.” – Julia Wiklander
Hear advice from changemakers: Riya Williams Yuyada, Nasra Ayub, Beatrice Finh, Taveeshi Gupta, Amanda Litman and Neil Data.
“if you ever feel the urge to create change, start now. There is no right time to say let me wait for resources, let me wait to have experience, because when I thought of starting a women’s organization, I had no resources, but we had the passion that was driving us. So, if you ever want to start, do not wait. Start now.”– Riya Williams Yuyada, feminist advocate, peace builder and changemaker, South Sudan
With advice on getting started, facing your fears, building community and creating alliances, these changemakers bring so much wisdom that we can use as we look to the year ahead. All have been guests on the Hey Changemaker! Podcast, and can be further listened to in previous episodes.
“Some of us will be very passionate about sexual reproductive health and rights. Some of us more about democracy, liberal democracy, rule of law, but the two of them should be married and by building this much bigger alliance, I think we can, we will find a better way of resisting and in fact, moving forward.”– Neil Datta, Founder and Executive Director of European Parliamentary Forum for Sexual and Reproductive Rights
