Although the safety pin movement is a gesture that shows standing up for what you believe in, it seems pointless to me. Most times when I approach someone I rarely look at what items are on the shirt if it’s not
I support your statement entirely. I agree that the fact is that the movement should make a bigger impact instead of being small quiet. It does make sense at all, it’s just an empty gesture that really isn’t making a strong statement towards the community itself.
The Safety Pin protest is basically people wearing safety pins to protest the election of Donald Trump as POTUS. The Safety Pin originates from people protesting the Brexit. I think its a great way to say you stand against Donald Trump, but it’s meaningless in actually doing anything to stop Trump or even spread awareness because of how subtle the pin is.
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.
