The Fruition Coalition is launching a new Interactive Progressive Dictionary on The Activist’s Muse in 2013. In progressive activism, and life in general, we use so many words with multiple, implicit meanings. The purpose of this project is to clarify and articulate the many ways that we interpret the words that we use in our work.
Here’s how it works:
* A reader submits her or his selected word and definition using the online survey
* The word and definition is selected for inclusion on the blog
* The word and definition is posted on the blog along with the name and institutional affiliation of the person who submitted it
* Readers post comments to affirm, contest, or add to the original definition
* The original author and others respond to comments, creating an interactive dialogue about how we understand words.
Please click on this link to participate! Some ideas for words to get us started might be: progressive, activism, power, community, leadership, politics, etc…but feel free to choose your own word.
