Hello people of the world and beyond! My name is Amy Cruz, new Gender+Women’s Studies Major! I want to tell you about my Activist project for the wonderful class, Feminist Activism. Here’s some background: I have anxiety and depression. It is hard to me to speak out or speak up, let alone get out of bed sometimes. Taking part in Activism is hard for me.
As a young adult in the 21st Century, we are often relied on to change the injustices in the world.
Social, political, and economical injustices damage our society and can carry on into future generations. It’s our job to make society a better place for our children and grandchildren, to change all the wrongs in the world. It’s our job to inform, show, and support those who stand up and have their voices heard. Activism is the key to solving our problem in the world. This is what we all should be doing to better our community. But, first you much ask yourself…am I an activist?
