Do It

Host or Take Part in a Peaceful Protest

Alessandra Rizzotti

Where
Anywhere

As any sit-in has taught us, you can stand up for something you believe in, just with your presence. Add a crowd and it's that much more effective. What do you stand for and how would you create a peaceful protest?

    They the media are changing little by little by little. I have seen petitions but I would like to brainstorm with others I love people but sometimes we have to say the tough things you know what I mean... ... I don't speak in anger I speak out of truth and love for fellow mankind.:-) I may add we create our own media through internet and force the envelope to make change and not just fight them but build it and they will come. :-)

    Peaceful protests are good and I would protest a few things. 1. mass incarceration needs to stop.2. The way Blacks are portrait in media and tv shows ( this is a multicultural country and we need to reflect that in media not all white shows and all black shows. Example Modern family.... there are more black and white or black and Latino mixed relationships but see what that show reflects. We need change to make this world a better place.

      Interesting thoughts. How would you send a message to TV shows about the importance of representing diversity in media?

    While I've never participated in an actual protest other than a strike for a job, I really want to know when a protest gets out of hand- like Occupy- where people are arrested and tear gassed for simply sitting-- does the message that people are trying to spread get lost? Is more awareness raised because of the negative attention police can bring to protests? I know that a former co-worker of mine raised a lot of hell in the news when he talked about how the police treated him during Occupy- and his letter is a testament to how you can really make an impact just by showing up: http://myoccupylaarrest.blogspot.com/
