The #Activism Shorty Award

These people stand up for what they believe in, cause a movement, or live up to Gandhi's words "be the change you want to see in the world". If they use Twitter, Facebook, blogs, YouTube videos or other social means to help generate awareness of their cause, start a revolution, or inspire others to do the same, they might just win this Shorty. Nominate who you think is the pinnacle of #Activism!
