"MutMuskelTrainer" Now Available for Pre-Orders



As part of her Landecker Project, Cesy Leonard has been working tirelessly on the “MutMuskelTrainer” – a radical calendar inspiring anyone to take action week after week in 2023.

In May 2022, Cesy with the action artist collective Radikale Töchter published a crowdfunding campaign in support of this project.

“We are creating an inspiring tool that empowers you to become the political person you want to be,” the collective explains, adding that “courage is a muscle that needs to be exercised regularly!

Support the Project

Anyone can support the MutMuskelTrainer directly via this crowdfunding page by pre-ordering either the MutMuskelTrainer or its accompanying racial workbook – the Handbuch zum Handeln (Handbook for Action).

In the words of the team, the calendar is all about “visions, rage, and courage.” Over the course of one year, it will accompany the reader to more self-efficacy and encourage anyone to turn their issues into political actions.

To stay updated on the project as well as other work of Cesy and the Radikale Töchter, follow their Instagram page.

Cesy is one of thirty 2021-2022 Landecker Democracy Fellows. This fellowship, a collaboration between the Alfred Landecker Foundationand 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.
