WHAT CAUSES DO YOU CARE ABOUT? 💗
Causes are closely tied to our values and say something about who we are as people. Tell us your story! What's important to you and what do you want people to know?
- •Teach everyone in the world how to do anythingWe believe everyone deserves a practical education. Education is a form of empowerment, and we're really trying to reach "everyone" in the world. For instance, this also includes people with little to no access to the Internet — we've tried various methods now and are currently partnered with Facebook's Free Basics!
- •Giving a voice to diverse people & communities"The Autism Project" team is a prime example of how our community is trying to come together to nurture constructive global understanding. There's awareness and also acceptance here.
- •Preserving cultureAn important aspect of any heritage is food. Someone from the Nigerian community on Twitter recently addressed that our article on Nigerian Joloff recipe was not as authentic as it could be! She then collaborated with us to provide the best recipe, insider tips, and offered pictures! You can find the recipe here: http://www.wikihow.com/Make-Nigerian-Style-Joloff-Rice
- •How about you? ❤️Please be respectful of other people's beliefs. This is a list of no judgment.
- •LGBTQ RightsDiscrimination against the LGBTQ community is the greatest civil rights issue we're facing today.Suggested by @MatthewAlmont
- •Animal rights and conservation of wildernessI can make day to day choices hat reduce my impact on the world, eliminate my support of industries that capitalize on animal cruelty, and be an activist both locally and federally to create laws that protect endangered animals and reduce senseless cruelty.Suggested by @boygirlparty
- •Women's reproductive healthSpecially in the developing world. Access to birth control, safe abortions, pregnancy and prenatal care are so important for an economically challenged family.Suggested by @shainadesai
- •Rape survivors in collegeI really tried to get a 501(c)3 off the ground with this my sophomore year, but I got weighed down with my own shit. Being away from home and managing a whole set of responsibilities after such a traumatic experience is so much. Majority of colleges have NO way to help victims and it's often that rapists who are students don't get any kind of consequences.
- •Queer-friendly, comprehensive sex educationGiving proper, well-researched, and sex-positive/critical approaches to sex education helps more people learn. We often forget trans folks, people outside of the gender binary, and sexual beings altogether!
- •Preventing the erasure of LGBTQIA+ minoritiesBecause it's easy for many people to forget about intersectionality. PoC, disabled people, poor people... There are many others that end up forgotten.
- •Reducing/eliminating domestic violence.Anger management and helping young people make quality life decisions.Suggested by @reconditioner
- •Eating Disorders, specifically giving our educators the tools needed to help our young kids with early detection. The whole "stop obesity" movement can sometimes trigger eating disorders in kids who are being told certain foods are "bad". I speak from experience, having my 12 yr old diagnosed with Anorexia last year.Suggested by @Carditwins
- •Creating a safer world for women and girls, especially women and girls of color.Sexual assault and harassment are far too common for women and girls everywhere. 1 in 6 women are sexually assaulted, and the percentage is higher for women of color. My cause is protecting women and girls and creating a world where every space is safe- where people look out for each other and respect women and their bodies.Suggested by @ohlauren
