Activism for Change

Throughout history, significant moments have been defined by an individuals ability to make a stand fueled by both bravery and the need for change. The very second that person rises above others and say, “no more” they have consciously decided something needs to be done. And so my segue for activism; a desire to make changes through multiple efforts in order to promote or make a change in society. Historically, activism has been used in many forms to initiate awareness and or change for a perceived greater good. Performed in a variety of ways we have seen activism take place in the streets, economically and hacktivism to name a few.

Diaper Slingers

Well, today is my Spartacus moment as a daddy activist. Although Spartacus lead 6000 slaves in what was known as the Third Serville War, I am rather hoping to rally a few dads to join my efforts through the form of collective action. A chance to combine our efforts in order to make a different kind of change. A change that has been long overlooked by society and is needed across the country. A change that will help dads avoid anymore future awkward situations. That’s right, I am talking about trying to find a changing table in a men’s restroom for my child. Seriously, how hard can this be? Despite being a diaper slinger for four years and two children, I cannot count how many times I have faced the challenges of trying to change a diaper in supermarkets, grocery stores or public parks. Because of this, I have had to adapt by changing diapers on the grass, behind a tree, or in our car, way too many times. My favorite one, was on top of a trash can inside a popular gear store (should have used one of their display tents.)

What to Do?

Now I bequeath you dads who find yourselves in my situation to let your digital voices be heard. Honestly, this petition has been going well but can get stronger. So if you are feeling brave and want to tell your children about your wild crazy days as a digital activist then please sign the petition.

Whether I go shopping or in the kitchen cooking, my children will be right there with me. Talking through my actions, involving them in decision making and understanding options available. Pitching tents, trails to hike and adventures to come, they will be my side.
