Adolescent Activism

Activism among youth is more prevalent and impactful than ever before

Implications - The intersection of youth engagement, their social media savvy, and pressing political and social issues in North America has resulted in this generation being more empowered, both internally and from external forces, than youth who have advocated for change in preceding generations. Though not immune to the exclusionary biases that exist in many different facets of North American systems, the diversity and magnified platform of this generation has resulted in a slow re-characterization of youth activism as progression, rather than it being met with immediate associations of rebellion and defiance.
