My project explores a shift in focus from activism and civil disobedience movements to the individual who choses to do activist work. A story usurped loses the nuances of humanity. We are too often led to consume broad, benign generalizations. Thus, my project strives to expose the authentic narrative beneath the threshold of a muddied and popularized zeitgeist. I am looking for the story to be told from the perspective of the people actually doing the work. From on-the-street organizers to policy makers, this project seeks the space for individuals to speak in their own words.

I have been covering activism and civil disobedience primarily in Chicago for the better part of a decade. I will continue in this vein of journalism as I believe in the significance of the individual voice; the organizer; the undervalued and underseen driving force for change. Journalism has the potential to give unfettered space to these individuals. I will continue to advocate space for the activist and subvert an oversimplification of their purpose. The only way to do this work is going to the direct source– the person.
