This social action project harnesses your passion and turns it into something tangible by focusing on emojis. The Emoji Reaction Project is a browser extension that suggests ways for you to get involved with issues you care about.

The technology uses your emoji reactions to causes posted on Facebook -- essentially sad or angry faces -- to determine if you care enough about a topic to do something about it. The social action project covers a number of relevant social justice issues including affordable housing, gun control, immigration rights and racial justice.

This idea turns the idea of slacktivism on its head. It also helps young people leverage their passion and make a difference during a divisive time politically.
