Considering the above quote, select a social problem or cause that
you could address as a social change agent. Explain what motivates you
to support this cause.
The list could go on and on.
Consider movies such as Erin Brockovich, Legally Blonde 2, Patch Adams,
or others where someone felt strongly about a social cause, or saw a
need, mobilized support, and worked to effect change. What cause might
you take on?
Describe the process you would go through to
mobilize others to collectively enact changes. Some of the questions to
be answered might be:
What are your goals? What would you like to
achieve? What role do you see yourself taking in this cause? How will
you mobilize others to help you? Where will you obtain funding for your
cause? What coalitions, local and state, would you contact who might
support you in your cause? What governmental policies would you need to
have changed? What specific skills or tools would you need to develop in
order to accomplish your goals? What would be your best approach to
this particular problem? What government agencies or representatives
would you need to approach? Research and name specific members of
government who might support you in your legislative district. What
roadblocks or challenges might you anticipate that could hinder your
success or progress?
Conclude your paper with a discussion about how
you would evaluate and reflect upon your progress, review your original
goals and evaluate how you are meeting your goals and if they have
remained current and relevant to your area of interest or concern.
Understanding that change takes time, how will you know that you are on
track and making progress? Summarize what you hope to accomplish and
any insights you might have gained in this project.
