This year's Activism Week is from the 14 to 18 October 2019. Our theme is 'everyday activism'.

An activist is someone who takes action, big or small, to make change happen. Everyone can be an everyday activist.

Pledge to be an everyday activist

An everyday activist is someone who challenges unfairness wherever they find it. 

You may be a support worker, family member or have a learning disability yourself.

By pledging to be an everyday activist you'll be the first to hear campaign updates and take action with thousands of other people.

You'll be making a difference to the lives of people with a learning disability, their family members and carers.
