Our youth can protest against such issues that may affect their lives. Marching will demonstrate their rights and connect with others with the same passion and issues. Protests and demonstrations can empower the youth and display the message they are trying to convey.
Raise Public Awareness
There are plenty of ways that the youth can campaign. By educating the community, our youth can create signs, use art, post videos, and show live speeches. All these actions will raise public awareness and raise the issues. The use of social networking, blogs, and online petitions are only a few examples of how the youth can ignite such effective actions.
Aside from leading demonstrations and raising advocacy, the youth can organize and encourage others to take part in community service. They can work to improve on the issues they care most about. If they are concerned about racial profiling and violence, they can advocate for legislations, attend demonstrations, and volunteer their time to help their community directly.
