Saturday, September 19, 2020

Add to calendar

Writing ideas from Write On Rise UpWriting for Social Justice  … The Who am I Series? Select one of the prompts below.

1. Identity is something that many young people struggle with, especially when there is so much outside themselves that influences and impacts their everyday lives. Take a moment and reflect on who you are, how you identify yourself, and what does it mean through the lens of race.

2. Have you ever experienced discrimination? Share a story of how you may have been discriminated against and share how you handled the situation. Looking back, do you think you should have handled it differently? How?

Safety is always important. Family should always offer a sense of security to you. What if that isn’t the case? Do you feel that in society today the average family is open to concepts that are “different,” or “foreign” to them? How have you and your family handled experiencing things outside your “norm”?
