dc.description.abstract Graduating from college is an enormous transition, and once made it can be especially difficult to integrate past hobbies and interests into daily life. This includes the work of an activist. After finding myself approaching this transition I had questions regarding activism and the commitment, passion, and motivation involved. Psychology has many theories on aggression and war; however, some psychologists have, instead, focused on the altruistic individual or the committed activist. I explored this aspect of human nature by interviewing six individuals, all located in Indiana, who actively work for social or political change. This project broadens the meaning of the word activism to include any type of action that may improve the life of another or help a community to grow. The interviews are presented in the form of film with an introduction and conclusion narrated by David Chudzynski. The stories shared by these six individuals offer encouragement and advice for those hoping to incorporate activism into life after college.
