Do One Brave Thing - Making Change
Do One Brave Thing is about every day citizens – every one of us – knowing when it’s time to step up, to be brave, and to know that our voices, our world, our future matters, and every single one of us can play a role in shaping the future – of our own lives, our communities and countries, and our world.
Watch this video. See the challenges we face, but also the courage to rise to that challenge. The courage that lives inside every single one of us. And both individually and together, let’s be the change we want to see in our world – and do one brave thing!
Stand up to hate - We have the power to be the change
Imagine you’re on a bus. You see someone approach another passenger. They start to harass or yell at them. Maybe it’s because of their identity, their faith, the colour of their skin, their gender, who they love, a physical challenge they have. Something about them that makes them ‘different’ than the one doing the yelling, and because they’re ‘different', the one yelling thinks it’s ok to ‘hate’ them.
We would love to invite you to watch and share our video – and let us know what you think.
