This is the 21st installment of a podcast following local activism efforts I am spearheading to address the surveillance state in Lexington, Ky. Through this series, you will get an inside look at boots-on-the-ground activism as it happens. The goal is to create a step-by-step how-to on tackling issues at the local level. You can access the other episodes HERE.
If you listened to episode #20, you know the city of Lexington sued me over an open records request I made. As you can imagine, this has become a major focus of my life. Dealing with a lawsuit takes a lot of time and energy!
In this installment of the Activism 101 podcast, I talk about the importance of keeping your focus on your activism plan and your ultimate goals when unexpected things (like a lawsuit) pop up in the midst of your work.
