This theory of activism involves centering childhood – our Evolved Nest – in social change work, while valuing the inner skills of mindfulness practices to facilitate the worldview shift necessary to move beyond Traditional Hamster Wheel Activism and into an integrated, relational activism strategy. Kindred Activism is being developed and explored through Kindred World's Kindred Fellowship Program and has been feature in the past year in posts at Rutgers University’s Childism Institute and Riane Eisler’s Center for Partnership Studies.
KFP’s unique mission is to guide students on an innovative educational journey that explores the systemic roots of social (in)justice in childhood through kindred activism: a theory of activism that is authentic, relational, and imaginative, and centers childhood as the first experience of sovereignty or oppression. The program has been featured on the Centers for Partnership Studies Leadership blog, the Rutger’s University’s Childism Institute blog, and in an ongoing series on Kindred Media.
For a quarter century, Kindred World thought-leaders have been exploring the connections among human consciousness, human and nonhuman kin, and ecological systems. As awareness of “One Family, One World” expands, humanity connects more authentically with ourselves, our family, and our world, but also with our capacity to achieve lasting social justice.
Kindred’s new connected story of human kinship is bringing forth the possibility for a new story of activism. Visit the Kindred Fellowship Program to learn more about our unique social justice education fellowship.
Applications for the Kindred Fellowship Program's 2023 Cohort will open on April 1, 2023.
