Peaceful Protesting

During these hectic times it’s important that we all practice peaceful protesting so that positive changes can be implemented into society. There are several ways to implement peaceful protesting. 

A simple one is signing petitions. This allows for the message to gain effectiveness, reaching everyone around the world. 

Next, creating slogans, symbols, posters, and banners in order to display visual communication can catch the eye of many people, allowing for others to get involved and be aware of the social issue. 

Lastly, I’d like to talk about educating oneself on the problem at hand. I encourage everyone to watch documentaries, read articles, listen to speakers, and be aware of the important issues. Educating yourself is a great way to enhance your protesting because you will then have accurate information and you’ll know how to take the next steps; you’ll also be able to encourage others to do the same and partake in other peaceful protests. I encourage everyone to continue reading about our current social concerns because not all lives matter if black lives don’t. I also hope everyone is staying safe and healthy during these difficult times.
