This assignment is designed to generate engagement with local organizations, learn more about how social movements operate, and develop a sociological analysis of original data. Through this assignment, you will apply sociological perspectives to everyday life and make connections between work being done in your local community and social movement concepts from this course.
This assignment asks you to identify a grassroots organization (i.e. a group that uses collective action at the local level) that is working to address an issue you care about. You will review the digital content available for that organization online (website, Twitter, YouTube, etc.) and select photographs (or screenshots) that represent their organization. You will then analyze the information you gathered and connect it to course concepts about social movements.
