Screen Shot 2014-03-14 at 11.53.13 AMMy name is Mary Joyce and I seek to understand and disseminate innovations in activism.

I give talks and trainings around the world on how citizens can use new and emergent strategies and tools to bring about social and political change.

After studying this topic for almost a decade I’ve come to believe that there is no one tool, one issue, or one region that matters most.  These are artificial divisions.  While I’ve been focusing on digital media use in activism for a while, I think that’s only part of the picture.  Rather, there is one struggle for the dignity of all living things, and it is a struggle that’s fought every day in a thousand different ways.

Previously, I was Associate Director of the Digital Activism Research Project at the University of Washington, which I co-founded in 2012 and from which I received my MA in Communication in 2014 and am currently on leave.  I am also the editor of the book Digital Activism Decoded and was named New Media Operations Manager for President Obama’s first national campaign.  I’ve lived in a number of countries, including Morocco, India, Ghana, and Chile, and will be living in Budapest as of September, 2014.
