Ignite Seattle is an evening of fast-paced talks on a wide range of interesting, inspiring, and challenging topics. After several wildly successful seasons at Town Hall, the popular series returns with its simple premise: Enlighten us, but make it quick. Presenters are asked: If you had five minutes on stage, what would you say? What if you got only 20 slides, and they rotated automatically after 15 seconds? Touching briefly on a variety of topics, from the DIY community to parent-educator relationships, and presented by anyone and everyone, Ignite events are all-ages, fast-paced, sometimes-unpredictable, and always thought-provoking.
My talk will focus on my experiences with nonviolent direct action:
Ever wondered what it’s like to voluntarily get arrested for something you believe in? Open to the idea of civil disobedience but scared of all the unknowns? Want to support your activist friends without getting arrested yourself? I’ll walk you through why I chose to start doing CD and what my experiences have been like thus far. I’ll also relay the stories and guidance I’ve received from more experienced activists whose example I am working to follow.
