Here at Skepchick, we are all big believers in activism. We talk a lot about skeptical topics but we also want to DO. From homeopathic demonstrations to vaccine education and clinics, we work hard to bring skepticism into real, everyday situations and to try to make a difference and spread more critical thinking in the world around us.
Activism can be tricky though. Not everyone always agrees with the best way to approach a problem. Measuring success can be a challenge so it’s often hard to know if we’re actually doing good. And, all too often, we embark on an event with the best intentions and it falls to the wayside because of logistical constraints or simply because we bite off more than we can chew.
Do you do activism, skeptical or otherwise? If so, what do you do and do you think you’re successful at it. If not, what holds you back?
The Afternoon Inquisition (or AI) is a question posed to you, the Skepchick community. Look for it to appear Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays at 3pm ET.
