Great Depression has had a lot of impacts on the family of Cesar Chavez. Cesar Chavez was born in 1927 and came to California with his family during the Great Depression. He became a migrant farm worker and dropped out of school in California. He also helped organize migrants and other farm workers in California during the 1960’s in his adulthood. He evdn led a fight by the United Farm Workers to form a union and bargain for other wages as a group. In february 1968, during a long strike against grape groupers, Chavez went a 25-day hunger strike. Soon, Senator Robert F. Kennedy announced his run fr President and came to support Chavez on March 11,the day Chavez ended his fast. I think that in order for a democracy to have caring and hardworking citizens then they must have three types of qualities which are personally responsible, participatory and justice oriented citizens.
Across the United States, it is common to find nurse-managed health centers that offer accessible health care services to the people. Nurse-managed health centers are a basic necessity in healthcare because they provide affordable and deserved care to the unprivileged population, while at the same time educating and training nurse practitioners. Usually, such health care institutions are led by an advanced practice nurse and as a result, need careful and efficient management and leadership skills and models. With the role that these centers serve, there is a need for an advocacy strategy for the nurse-managed health centers as a way of overseeing their effectiveness in service delivery grow.

The American Civil Liberties Union or better known as the ACLU has been around for almost a hundred years know. The ACLU derived from the National Civil Liberties Bureau which was co-founded in 1917 during the World War 1 by an attorney activist Crystal Eastman, and Roger Nash Baldwin. The focus of the CLB was on primarily anti-was speech, freedom of speech, and on supporting people who did not want to serve in World War 1. Now, during the time of November 1919 and January 1920 there were raids called the “Palmer Raids.” An attorney general by the name of Mitchell Palmer began rounding up and deporting people. Thousands of people all over the United States were arrested without warrants and without regard to constitutional protections against
There are many factors behind this poll because it is a common view of the majority of the American people that in many issues, Congress has become a puppet in the hands of the President against its true will. But it is one side of the picture because the other side of the picture will show us the different scenarios. Truly speaking, Congress is not an impartial body now. The foreign policies of U.S are also not working effectively for their people. The U.S. Constitution gives Congress widespread powers to form foreign policy, though congressional activism and persuade on foreign policy has mixed over time. Lawmakers rarely interrelate straightforwardly with other states on strategy, but the laws that Congress Senate approves, can influence
Democracy is a system of government in which the power to govern is vested on the citizens. This power is exercised either directly wherein citizens reach a consensus to implement policies, or indirectly through the election of representatives who will act on behalf of the citizen's interest (Janda, Berry, Goldman, and Hula, 2012). In such states that have adapted democratic government, political participation is the hallmark of citizens' right and ability to exercise their power. The definition of political participation, as with all concepts of social sciences, is subject to debate since most social science concepts are subject to the changing norms of society and government. Thus, this paper defines political participation as a social phenomenon that takes on different forms which is used by citizens to influence government policies and politics.

America is known by many to be the best countries in the world but there are still many things that stand in the way of the american dream (Stealing From America). One of these things is corporate lobbyist. These people have slowly taken over american democracy with pay to play corruption and giant lobbying teams (The Atlantic). Nowadays unions and protest have been much less successful in stopping the behemoth that is a corporate lobbying team(Secular Talk). Corporation will continue to grow wealth inequality in america if we do nothing about it.
There comes a time in history where injustice in being upheld in places of the world that target a certain race, gender, social class, or religion. The situation can only be brought to justice when an individual being targeted speaks up and builds a vision to get their team justice. Leaders change the world as they set their team in the direction to a fulfilling settlement by organizing a group of individuals who are in need of justice or equal rights.
Anti-oppressive practice focuses on the structural inequalities and places the blame that service users internalize on the structures and systems themselves (Ajandi, 2018). Humanistic and social justice values and ideas shape anti-oppressive practice (Healy, 2015). They address inequalities that affect opportunities of service users, due to the interlocking of social relations and oppression (Burke & Harrison, 2002). AOP aims to identify oppressions and define ways in which social workers can attempt to become anti-oppressive, avoid discomfort, and end oppression to service users (Strega, 2007). It highlights mutual involvement between the social worker and the service user, challenging forms of oppression and inequalities (Burke & Harrison, 2002), and presents the idea that service users do not occupy a “single identity”, but instead have interlocking oppressions that work together to put clients at a social disadvantage (Strega, 2007). According to Ajandi, anti-oppressive practice does not believe in a hierarchy of oppression, where all oppressions are on a “level playing field of discrimination” (2018). AOP produces strategies to be used in social work practice to work alongside service user: critical reflection, critical assessment, empowerment, working in partnership with service users, and minimal
When playing the role of an activist on in any form, activism is constantly prominent in their lives. Activism is defined to be the policy or action of using dynamic and often confrontational campaigning by means of organizing demonstrations and protests to achieve the goal in bringing about political and/or social change. Then there is slacktivism which refers to the actions that are performed via the Internet to support and stand up to a political or social cause but which can be regarded as requiring little time, effort and involvement, e.g. signing an online petition or joining a campaign group on a social media website.
Can you imagine that you are being discriminated because of who you are? For instance, imagine that you still cannot be promoted in your jobs even you are brilliant at it, or you are being mocked and ignored at school because of the color of your skins, religions or disabilities. You will feel unjust, grief and indignant, but there is no way for you to revolt. What’s more, these experiences could not only hurt one’s physical health but also mental health, even could cause a lifelong impact. Unfortunately, the sad truth are happening all over the world everyday. However, nobody is born to discriminate others,
