I got back late last night from the Sierra Student Coalition’s national leadership gathering (Shindig). I had an absolute blast, and have been doing some very good thinking all week.
Most of what I’ve been focused on has been my role in this big, new activism thing. I’m relatively new to activism – the past year has definitely been a crash course in that. I know that I definitely don’t like the model of activism that MPIRG promotes (it burns the activists out too quickly and irritates everyone they talk to), and I love the model of activism that Summer of Solutions/the SSC promotes.
