Practices of Catalytic Social Engagement

After the Protests are Heard

In this chapter we explore the ethical and spiritual challenges of altermodern, catalytic social engagement. Our role is not to simply denounce the real and announce the ideal. Our role is to be catalysts of justice, learning from the courage, the achievements, the limitations and even the failures of those who have embodied this commitment to equity, flourishing and plenitude in the past and are living it out now in their work as elected officials, as professionals, citizens and community activists.

Keywords:   plenitude, Toni Preckwinkle, Theaster Gates, altermodern relational aesthetics, civic engagement, Patricia Hill Collins, President Barack Obama, Solutions Journalism, An ecology of opporunity, Windigos
