ActivismImpacts, previously known as World Awareness Association, is a youth activism organization that raises awareness for sociopolitical issues and helps activists create change within their communities. Our organization utilizes social media (predominantly Instagram) as well as blog posts on our website to spread information. Through these posts, we encourage everyone to gain knowledge about the world we live in.
With this knowledge, AI empowers people with the ability to make the world a better place. We post on Instagram, Facebook, Youtube, and our website. Check out any of these platforms for information on a wide range of topics as well as how you can make a difference.
We write about social and environmental activism, famous activists, protests and demonstrations, and more. Our content encourages you to find topics that you are passionate about while providing opportunities to get involved.
There are multiple ways that you can get involved in your community. There is no “right” way to be an activist, it all depends on your goals and what is available to you. For example, you may only be able to call or email government or local officials, or you might have the ability to attend protests or go to City Hall and speak before an audience.
AI uses multiple social media platforms to spread our message and try and get more individuals interested in activism. Are there issues with social media-based activism? One common issue with social media activism is that it becomes easy to become an “activist” without truly being committed to the cause. This means that you can share a post to your feed or story, or maybe even send it to a friend, but don’t necessarily read the entire post, understand it, or feel like it is something that you can really support.
Social media can be amazing, when used correctly. However, it is not, and should not be used as, an excuse or way to easily be an “activist.” There are still a number of very beneficial activism Instagram pages, which can help widen your view on the world and maybe even help you find something that you are interested in.
Why is activism important?
Activism is important because it helps show that people actually want to change the way things work and happen. Even if an activist does not make an extraordinary difference themself, they could inspire countless other individuals to change their habits or speak out for a cause.
