In this fun video full of animations, Jody Williams discusses her “righteous indignation at injustice” and how we can also become agents of change.  She also warns that we all must make a choice about getting involved or not.  We can’t avoid it.  And if we don’t, then someone else will take control in our place.

  • What is politics?  Can we avoid it?
  • What happens if we opt out of politics and activism?
