In honour of Health Activist Writer’s Month Challenge, today’s Sunday Quotes is about Activism.

An activist is one who is actively involved in creating community, whether that is locally in their neighborhood or internationally. It is an admirable quality.
Jasmine Guy

An activist is someone who makes an effort to see problems that are not being addressed and then makes an effort to make their voice heard. Sometimes there are so many things that it’s almost impossible to make your voice heard in every area, but you can sure try.
Joanne Woodward

I have referred to myself as an accidental activist on more than one occasion.
Joan Blades

I think the importance of doing activist work is precisely because it allows you to give back and to consider yourself not as a single individual who may have achieved whatever but to be a part of an ongoing historical movement.
Angela Davis
