“The Incredible Reason You Might Start Seeing Everywhere” is a really positive article in such a difficult time. I think it is a great idea for ANYONE to be able to wear these pins, no matter if your woman, bla
In my opinion, everyone should come together and stick with the “safety pin method” everyone. Not just one race. Everyone should be able to come together for what’s right instead of trying to single people out if there’s more people, there’s more power.
I read the Huffington Post article. I think the author has a point. Looking at voters overall, it was white people who elected Donald Trump. Now everyone can wear a safety pin, but if you look at the way many people generalize minorities into stereotypes, its fair that we get put into one group. Also, many white people voted for Donald Trump, thats a fact. So instead of marking ourselves with a pin, we should actually make a difference next time and not elect Trump or someone like him.
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.
