Millennials have been known for supporting social groups that fight for political justice with topic such as gender equality, immigration and environmental change. Below I have listed some of my favorite social groups and their statement about what they do. I hope this gives people motivation to follow a political or social group that makes change in the community.
Guerrilla Girls (@GuerrillaGirls): “The Guerrilla Girls are feminist activist artists. We wear gorilla masks in public and use facts, humor and outrageous visuals to expose gender and ethnic bias as well as corruption in politics, art, film, and pop culture. Our anonymity keeps the focus on the issues, and away from who we might be: we could be anyone and we are everywhere. We believe in an intersectional feminism that fights discrimination and supports human rights for all people and all genders.”
Black Lives Matter (#BLM): “The Black Lives Matter Global Network is a chapter-based, member-led organization whose mission is to build local power and to intervene in violence inflicted on Black communities by the state and vigilantes.”
UNICEF (@Unicef): “UNICEF works in over 190 countries and territories to save children’s lives, to defend their rights, and to help them fulfil their potential, from early childhood through adolescence. And we never give up.”
American Rivers: “American Rives protects wild rivers, restores damaged rivers and the wildlife they support, and conserves clean water for people and nature, with an eye toward recreationists as well.”
