Social action is an activity that addresses a social system. When an individual takes social action, they’re adding their voice to a collective or trying to mobilize a collective in order to create positive social change.
In this assignment you’ll have an opportunity to take social action in response to a form of systemic oppression that impacts a social group you care about.
Think of a form of systemic oppression you would like to address and decide on the social action you will take to address it. Your social action can consist of
● signing or starting an online petition ● sending a message to or calling a public official or institutional leader ● making a social media post advocating for an oppressed social group ● donating to an organization or collective that advocates against
oppression ● attending a protest, rally, or public meeting (could be online) ● volunteering several hours with an advocacy organization (could be
online) ● something else—social action possibilities are endless!
Once you have completed your social action, write a reflection (between 300 and 500 words) that addresses the following questions:
● What did your social action involve (what specifically did you do) and how do you think it addresses systemic oppression?
● How did you decide on this form of social action? How did it feel to complete it (were you nervous, excited, scared)?
● What effect do you hope your action will have? What can you do to follow up on this action to continue fighting against this form of oppression?
