When I think of advocacy I think of people taking a stand for what they believe in and showing their support for a cause. Advocacy is extremely beneficial to our society and as an American, I believe we should take advantage of our right for free speech. In general, I think movements that work to create change are what brings people closer together- unifying them with a strong belief. Movements are an opportunity for different voices to speak louder and more powerful. They turn many small voices into one strong idea that can promote important changes. Movements that come to mind to me right now are the Women’s March, LGBT equality, gun violence, and immigration. I feel that every movement can apply to everyone personally in one way or another and I am grateful that there are people out there that will speak out for those who are unable to. I relate with the Women’s March because of the personal effects it has on me. Between abortion rights and equality for women, I stand with their ideas and would consider exploring it further. I believe that everyone has the right to their own opinions and the right to choose what they want to do with their own life. I hope by exploring these movements I can get a better sense of how I can help in my own school and better understand how much people are fighting for what I believe in. As we move forward, I see potential challenges with disagreements in serious and emotional topics. Hopefully, everyone is understanding of one another and can think about others views in detail.
