Senator Elizabeth Warren emphasizes taking individual action such as volunteering to register voters or run for office, since “collective action begins with individual action.”[i] She mentioned in her book This Fight is Our Fight the example of a man who wears a button stating “Love Trumps Hate” and asks that we each pick our own act of defiance. This is an echo of Gloria Steinem’s request for daily acts of rebellion in her book Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions (1987). Warren also emphasizes standing up for core values: battle bigotry, build economic opportunity for all, and demand democracy.
