Activism That Works

How do social justice and environmental activists determine or define their effectiveness? This unique consideration shares the stories of eight diverse social justice movements—including the Alberta College of Social Workers, the Calgary Raging Grannies, Oxfam Canada, and the Youth Project of Halifax—as they contemplate their own achievements. Revealing that success is not measured only in large-scale social reform, but is also found in moments of connection, such as in building relationships and raising awareness, this record provides meaningful insights into the struggle against neoliberal capitalism. A contribution to the movements challenging the domination of free market ideology, this book will offer a space for reflecting on the impacts of activist groups.
