Community Building and Activism

How do we build community? What do we typically think of when we talk about activism? How is that different than community building? What are the intersections between the two in the stories of East Cleveland women?

It can be argued that building community and activism go hand in hand - a supportive community is necessary for sustainable activism, and activism that strives towards social justice can build an inclusive community.

The women of East Cleveland tell stories of their own brands of activism and we examine how these intersect and overlap with stories of uplifting the community.
