The Influencer Activist Toolkit

What is an Influencer? You are a creative who has the super power of persuading an audience to like, click, share, and buy. But is that all? If you can do all of that, can’t you also educate, inform, and inspire your audience to action for things that can bring positive change in the world?

That’s why a brilliant group of influencers have come together to create The Influencer Activist Toolkit

We are in a very critical time right now. In addition to living in the middle of a pandemic, we’re dealing with racial conflict across the country, and it’s an election year. We’ve got a lot going on.

As lifestyle influencers, we are in the very special position of bringing a sense of normalcy to our audiences. 

We get to use our platforms to share fun stories, remind our followers to find the silver lining, and yes…introduce them to products and services that help to make their lives easier.

Influencers have a responsibility for using their platforms for more than just financial gain and the adoring attention of our followers. Right now we need all hands on deck in educating and empowering other humans to change the trajectory of the state of our world.

If you’re here, we’re assuming that you’re up for the challenge. Thank you for being willing to do this work with us. If you have any questions about the toolkit, or want to be a contributor, let us know. 

How do you add advocacy to your lifestyle platform? What are the important messages that you should be bringing to your audience? Learn how to become an influencer activist.

Diversity Isn't Just Black and White

For many of us, when we hear the term “diversity,” we immediately think of race – and even then, it is only in terms of Black and White. To limit diversity to only that measurement is to miss the larger point about representation.

Believe it or not, the most important part of being an ally, advocate, or activist is listening. What do you do with the information you learn? How do you amplify voices?
