Best Answer

An activist is a person who is passionate about what they believe in and helps educate other people about the subject at hand. For example, Inflammatory Breast Cancer Foundation. Activists help spread awareness of the disease by writing and/or calling ALL forms of media letting people know there is more than one type of Breast cancer and you don't have to have a lump to have breast cancer. Some IBC activists have a blog on a subject they know is vital.

When touched by anything, whether it be a disease or politics, these activists are working diligently to make people aware of their cause.

AnswerAn activist is a person who works toward social change. They work to change the way that society functions with regard to some social problem. Activism goes much deeper than educating others about a subject though that is a form of activism. Other forms of activism include protests, boycotts, writing letters and organizing rallies around a particular issue or set of issues.
