Activist

An activist is a person who takes action about a cause or issue that is important to them. Activism can range from gathering signatures for a petition or for voter registration, maintaining a level of awareness about a particular issue or many issues of importance to that person, discussing and educating people about these issues, and can work on a small scale or a large scale. Someone can also be an “armchair activist” meaning that they do their activism from home in the form of making donations, staying informed, and discussing the issues with the people in their life.

A social activist or a community activist is someone who is working in the community. It might be to get the municipal government to put a crosswalk near a school, or to get a candidate elected. An activist can embrace any political ideology.
