My Stab at: Taking Informed Empathic Action
My favorite sphere that we explored this semester was social policy. After reading numerous critical texts by Jones, Kaufer, and Killinsworth that offer theories in how to write a logical policy argument we proceeded to deconstruct their theories behind a logical approach to writing a policy argument through numerous case studies. After we familiarized ourselves with how to write a meaningful policy argument we set out to become citizen activists, and write a policy argument of our own that spoke to a problem of discourse that circulates in society today, while suggesting a call to action, in order to facilitate change in our society. I personally chose to do mine on resisting "Post-Racial" discourse in a day and age where the effects of mass incarceration have replaced some forms of the old Jim Crow laws. Below are screen shots of the blog, where I choose to circulate my policy argument, if you click on the pictures you will be guided to the actual blog site.
