VMHC Curators

Interested in addressing a problem, making something better, or helping others in your community? Whether you are a veteran activist or a novice eager to get started, the global COVID-19 pandemic impacted the ways in which we advocate for change.

On February 25, 2021, VMHC Curators hosted a panel of today’s changemakers that discussed how to tap into your passion, get involved in a cause, apply your unique skills, and take action in an age of working-from-home. Several expert panelists featured in the museum’s Today’s Agents of Change exhibition offered insights from their experience and answered audience questions about conducting advocacy work from home.
