Social Justice Advocacy 101: How to Become a Social Justice Advocate From A to Z (Paperback)
People have been advocating and standing up for social justice issues throughout history. From one social movement to the next, from one influential person to another, we as an American society are constantly attempting to progress towards a better tomorrow.
If you've ever found yourself passionate or upset about any or all of the issues and causes going on in the United States, you're not alone. People often feel the same way, but don't know where to begin to even try to make a change. Some may even think there's no use because they don't know where to start.
That's where this handy book comes in In this guide, we'll go over everything you need to know to get started on the exciting path of social justice advocacy, including:
- A brief overview of how the United States government works
- How to build relationships with government officials
- Different kinds of social justice events
- Basic aspects of advocacy everyone should know
- Glossary of important terminology
- Resources for further learning
- ...and more
So, choose a pencil or pen and grab a notebook, or I suppose a tablet or computer nowadays. Then find a seat, get comfortable, and welcome to Social Justice Advocacy 101
