The #NeverAgain movement has quickly become a national movement, but in keeping with the spirit of The Everyday Revolutionary, we understand that national movements are made up of well run local movements. Here’s an article from Hingham, Mass about the organization of the student walkout there.

Locally Grown

The Everyday Revolutionary

We’ve discussed our Everyday Revolutions in the framework of local or even neighborhood level changes. There are issues, nationwide issues, that are of a concern, as well.  We here at the Everyday Revolutionary would submit that national movements are really a collection of hundreds or thousands of locally grown participants seeking to raise awareness in their part of the world, change the mind of their elected representatives or even change local policies regarding the issue at hand. Being part of a million person march on Washington has its effect, but being one of a million Everyday Revolutionaries across the nation changing their hometown also has a big impact.

No Age Limit for Everyday Revolutionaries

 

Whether you support, oppose or are just concerned about the student walkout regarding school safety and gun violence, it is an example of Everyday Revolutionaries putting their right to demonstrate into practice. Although these walkouts are happening nationwide, each walkout is a locally organized event. Dissent, debate and the right to demonstrate are essential to a free society.
