GRASSROOTS ADVOCACY

Before the advent of the internet, only those with a public platform, such as politicians and celebrities, could easily communicate with the public. Now, anyone who has a social media account can quickly and easily disseminate a message or an idea. In fact, many human services organizations regularly use social media to advocate for their targeted service users and to raise awareness about important social justice issues. For instance, human services employees at the National Alliance to End Homelessness regularly use social media to advocate for the needs of the homeless population. Some social media posts include statistics and other important information about homelessness, while others encourage the public to contact elected officials to pass or protect legislation designed to help homeless individuals.

For this Assignment, you create a short, social-media-style post that advocates for a social justice issue that aligns with your professional identity.

You may also wish to include a link to a website that provides more detailed information about the issue.
