Immigrants, people of color, LGBTQ people, and others are the ones who are targeted by the Trump Campaign. White People can’t make themselves feel better by putting on a safety pin on and claim that we are safe
Hi. This seems like an interesting topic, and all in all, I think there is quite a bit of potential, but it should probably be a bit more developed.
You could draw from real life experiences in order to reinforce some of your claims.
Dereka, I agree with your stance on the topic, but it would be nice to see more development on your thoughts on it. I feel like the kind of people who would partake in performative allyship would not be convinced that what they’re doing is pointless without supporting evidence.
Also I wonder, what forms of activism do you personally advocate for?
This is a youth-powered social network that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It's easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other's work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it's been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
