I definitely agree that a whole race shouldn’t be blamed for trump. I don’t think the movement will do much but hopefully if there are more people that agree with you, things will change for the better.
My first thought after reading about this safety pin idea was: “Wow it’s nice to see a group of people coming together and trying to show others that they support them.” This thought quickly vanished when I
I definitely agree with you, in that in order for things to change, we need to actually make that change happen. I do think that the safety pin idea is a good start and a good representation of what we want to change, but we do need to stand up and make change. Great writing and ideas!
I agree with your post. I think the safety pin idea is a great way to get the conversation going about the problems in our country, but it’s not going to fix or change anything. I am not against the safety pin, but like you said, we to do a lot more than just pin something on our jacket.
Great insight, and I agree with everything you say. I think the safety pin is more just a representation of a goal or an idea though, the safety pin won’t fix anything itself, but what it represents will.
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.
