What is this?

Political Action refers to collective action used to advance, protect and/or enhance the interests of a given group, community or social movement. This outcome is often achieved through non-violent tactics such as education, petitioning, public advocacy, and direct action, wherein individuals rally to resist unjust social structures, policies and practices. Such acts of resistance recognize that politics is a discursive and often coercive landscape where groups and individuals are afforded varying degrees of power and agency. Therefore, the purpose of Political Action is to proactively challenge the existing distribution of power, transforming and advancing public consciousness towards collective justice and freedom.
