What would you most like to change about the world that you live in?
There is so much inequality in the world right now along intersecting lines of sexuality, gender, 'race', socio-economic status, its heartbreaking to see and experience the disadvantage and discrimination in the world.

What can you do to make it happen?
Challenge people's stigma and stereotypes and make them aware of their own privilege (maybe white privilege, male privilege, heterosexual privilege etc.) Make structural disadvantages visible so we can deconstruct them.

- are you interested in making a Digital Story one day? - are you interested in watching the stories here and maybe sharing them with your friends, family members, teachers, Members of Parliament?
There are some things you can do to help make the site a vibrant and interesting place...
- leave comments for the storytellers when you watch their stories - share them on facebook or send the link out via email or e:lists - share the occasional blog post about your experiences, small and large, of ‘everyday activism’... especially how you go about 'making people aware of their own privilege' - that can be tough!
Hope to hear from you more and see you around the site!
