Spreading the Word by Carolyn Zimmerman

 

I became an advocate at the invitation of someone who was already involved in this important work.

 

Whether you share your personal experience of commitment to abolition or express your financial support of the cause, you can help grow the movement. There are many opportunities and examples of how individuals can quietly – but effectively – share their dedication to causes.

  • You might write an article or give a short presentation for your faith community.
  • Offer to speak to your favorite civic group or reading club.
  • Post on Facebook or another internet site.
  • Submit a “Thought for the Day” or a “Letter to the Editor” to your local newspaper.

 

Sometimes, if you are alert and brave, the most surprising and satisfying turn of events occurs, one that you hadn’t really planned. Somehow, over a cup of coffee with a good friend, the opening appears straight out of the blue and you have the chance to engage in a deeper subject. Your reward may well be capturing a new champion for the cause!”
