"Becoming an activist"

Becoming an activist

When I was in my early to mid-teens, in the \970’s, I stood outside the Berkeley Co-op (a sadly now defunct cooperative grocery chain in the Bay Area in California) handing out leaflets and exhorting shoppers to boycott grapes.  I don’t reven emember how I got involved, but the experience made a lasting impression.  It was my first act of participating in public life, and made a fundamental change in how I viewed community and my place in society.

Thank you Cesar!
