Cesy Leonard in Veto Magazine



Landecker Fellow Cesy Leonard is an action artist, speaker, and founder of the Radikale Töchter (Radical Daughters) – inspiring people through political art to stand up for democracy, freedom, equality, brotherhood, and sisterhood.

Cesy was recently featured in Veto Magazine, which gives courageous people a stage and inspires a variety of ways to act politically.

In the feature, Cesy, together with Emily Laquer, take a look into the future of activism. More specifically, they focus on how to get civil society back into action after the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Cesy is one of thirty 2021-2022 Landecker Democracy Fellows. This fellowship, a collaboration between the Alfred Landecker Foundation and Humanity in Action, was created to strengthen a new generation of leaders whose approaches to political and social challenges can become catalysts for democratic placemaking and community building.
