Advocacy and Social Justice Resources
Know the facts, engage with issues related to the coronaviurs (COVID-19), safely take action, and learn more about advocacy work while maintaining social distancing. You can make a difference! Follow these guidelines from the CCAR team.
The Center for Community Action and Research (CCAR) believes that at this time, perhaps more than ever, it’s important to remain dedicated to our values of active citizenship and civic engagement. Despite changes to campus life, they will continue to be a resource for social justice education and community involvement—and you’re invited to get involved!
Social Justice Tips
How does the coronavirus (COVID-19) add to other systems of oppression? How can you continue to support local advocacy and mutual aid efforts while practicing social distancing? And perhaps most important, how can you take care of yourself? If you wish to channel your concern into action, CCAR has written an extensive recommendation list including information on volunteering virtually, petition signing and social media campaigns, writing to your elected officials, and much more. We’re all in this together. You can make a difference. Even from your laptop.
Want to learn about recent advocacy work? Need a little intellectual stimulation while you’re stuck at home? Here’s what the CCAR team has been reading lately:
- >> “HOLY SH*T! 7 things to do instead of hoarding toilet paper” by Rae Abileah and Nadine Bloch
- >> Nonprofit Westchester’s Coronavirus Advocacy Statement and Resources
- >> “Social Justice in a Time of Social Distancing” by Kenneth Bailey and Lori Lobenstine
- >> “New York City Must Act Immediately to Strengthen Our Nonprofit Social Safety Net” by Brad Lander
