--> helper is the role that I feel would suit me most. --> I would try to lend a hand if need be. Offer to listen to the issues and problems that the advocates/ impacted are undergoing. Offer emotional and mental support in dire times.
I see myself as a helper. I will do anything they tell me to do as long as it is reasonable. That would probably include making posters, spreading event information, gathering people, taking care of people...
I am an advocate (underlined twice) I take it upon myself to remain education about important issues and events and help to educate those around me. I stand up for people that need support and contact those who can make change.
I am an advocate because I'd like to spread awareness on issues that are not only important to society, but also important to myself. As an advocate, it is important to educate and to shed light on issues prominent in society.
I see myself as being the advocate. Sticking out for those being belittle or neglected. I would work to bring about discussion of issues that people would not normally think of. I can't stand the ignorance of people.
I see myself as an organizer or an advocator. I like to help plan. Help be the behind the scenses [sic] for change. But I also like to advocate that change, get the word out and explain why this cause is worthy
1. I see myself as an advocate, althought I wish I would say I was all 4. I hope to become an organizer or helper. 2. As an advocate, I voice my opinions to my friends & family (those around me) and am open to sharing my ideas on social media
1.) organizer 2.) Kind've falls in line with helper I think, but it's all of the small things that go along with planning an event, or a protest like the day, the permissions (if any), and other things. A lot of little things.
The role I see for myself is an organizer. Currently, I am organizing the revival of the California Review. a conservative newspaper at UCSD to oppose the disgustling [sic] singularity of leftist ideology on campus. Bring some real diversity of thought
Organizer - create a group for Jews advocating for justice in Palestine - organize a club where students can learn about their civil liberties adn civil rights through texts, guest speakers (eg ACLU lawyers), and discussion - organize a UCSD-specific civil rights group to keep tabs on UCSD policies and protest injustice
1. I would prefer the role of rebel because strong ideologies and the promise of real change motivate me more than gradual shifts in politics. 2. I'd find some attention - grabbing way to protest and put out a message as widely as possible
On Friday, June 2, 2017, members of the Tell Us How UC It project team presented to a CAT3 Sixth College writing program course titled: Art of the Protest: Cultural Production, Protest, & Technologies of Change.
As described in its syllabus, "This writing and communication course will focus on the rhetoric, technology, and art of American protest, with special attention understanding the role of technology (from the printing press to twitter) in civil disobedience. This course insists on the importance of historical memory, asking how the history of American protests aids in and informs the formation of contemporary movements, demanding that we all think about how we engage, remember, and honor the past while speculating on how we create our collective future."
The title of the presentation was "Saving the Revolution: Living Archives and the Future of Civil Rights."
These images were responses to the question: In thinking about the 4 major roles in social change (Helper, Advocate, Rebel, Organizer) - 1. What role do you see for yourself? 2. What types of activities would you do in that role?
