The goal of activism is to effect change in the world. But how do we know what works? In a political climate ripe for protests and petitions, it's important to take a step back and examine the effectiveness of our methods. Drawing from the experience of seasoned activists as well as social psychology research, CFI's Outreach Director Debbie Goddard outlines evidence-based ways to help our activism actually work.
