Making Social Movements More Accessible and Less Elitist

I recently read a great article on everydayfeminism.com that gave nine great ways that we can make social movements less elitist and more accessible. They certainly are worth repeating!

  1. Welcome people who are trying to learn.
  2. Prioritize physical and economic accessibility.
  3. Celebrate age diversity.
  4. Make room for mistakes and accountability.
  5. Value intention and action more than ‘correct’ language.
  6. Learning the art of Calling-in vs Calling-out
  7. Acknowledge and breakdown activist hierarchies.
  8. Value everyone’s contributions.
  9. Center Love.
