Carnival of Aces: Invisible Activism

Welcome to the link roundup for the November 2020 Carnival of Aces! This month’s theme was “Invisible Activism“. I provided a few prompts but participants are welcome to interpret the theme however they like.

The December Carnival of Aces is already under way, hosted by Char, with the theme of “Allies”. Please see the call for submissions!

Some Activism Should not be Invisible, by Cinnamon

Efforts to find more people of color to join their efforts are rarely or barely public. It’s instead discussed behind the scenes, or in a space with other established activists, rather than where POC might hear it and feel 1) encouraged by the efforts being put forth by white activists and 2) encouraged to reach out and provide their insight and perspective.

Visibility of Identity, by Char

Identities and experiences exist on a spectrum of visibility. Their noticeability may shift over time and can be affected by your choice to disclose, how you express yourself, where you are, who you spend time with, and more.

Behind the scenes of the Ace Community Survey, by me, Siggy

The Ace Community Survey has three major work loads: survey design, analysis, and survey reports. Each of these requires an immense amount of labor, divided across many volunteers.

Thanks for reading and/or participating! If you have any last minute submissions, please let me know so I can add it in.

The Carnival of Aces is always looking for volunteers to host.  Please see the masterpost if you’re interested!
