Activism ideas for individuals

Even if you don't have the time, energy, or desire to work on larger group projects with other people, there are many small things you could do to help raise awareness about Esperanto. Here is a brainstorm list.

Donate Esperanto books to libraries. Borrow Esperanto books from libraries so that the books are seen to be used and not just gathering dust on the shelves. Otherwise a library might decide to get rid of the books to make room for more popular books.

Libraries often arrange special displays of books and memorabilia about a particular subject. Talk to your local library about doing a display about Esperanto.

Advertise your local club with advertisments in local newspapers, and attractive flyers on bulletin boards in coffee shops, etc.

During pledge drives for public television and radio, ask members of your local Esperanto club to donate money so that a single larger group donation can be made and announced on the air in the name of your Esperanto club.

If you have a website, blog, etc, be sure to make Esperanto visible on it.

If you are a regular visitor to a website or other services that has translated material in various languages, and you are competent at translation, then consider translating into Esperanto. Examples include encyclopedias like http://wikipedia.org, technical information sites like http://joelonsoftware.com, webcomics like http://userfriendly.org, ... the possibilities are endless.

Talk about Esperanto with your friends, and let them know interesting good things that have happened in your life as a result of Esperanto. But don't be pushy about it. :)

Put an Esperanto flag, sticker, patch, etc on your book bag, jacket, car, etc.

The next time you think about reading a book, check the E-USA or UEA book catalog to see if it is available in Esperanto.
