Step 1: Have you identified an injustice that you care about? Have you identified if the issue you care about is an injustice or an inconvenience?
Injustice: Online Bullying is a serious issue that is only growing, and is affecting the lives of people every single day.
This is a huge injustice that happens every single day and is most definitely overlooked compared to physical or verbal bullying. Since the internet is new turf and social media such as Facebook is only a decade old, this is new material we must learn more about and focus on more throughout the years.
Step 2: Do you understand the root cause of the injustice you care about? Do you have a compassionate insight that could help you solve your chosen injustice?
The root causes of online bullying include ignorance, control or power, anonymity, and revenge.
Insight: To Solve the Injustice of Kids and adults being bullied on the internet, we will address the lack of knowledge, by Speaking out in my community and educating people.
Specific: We will hold a bullying awareness day by creating community-based comic books tackling online bullying.
Measurable: We hope to bring out 100 people to our event, including writers, illustrators, editors, etc.
Attainable: We have received a $250 grant from PeaceFirst as well as support from local business such as Four Horseman Comics and Gaming and Direct Results. (Possibly West Virginia University)
Relevant: This event will promote community awareness as well as new friendships, sponsorships, and more.
Time-Bound: This event will be held on April 23rd, 2017 from 12pm-5pm. Food and drinks will be provided.
