Students And Social Change

During  the 1960s and 1970s, college students oftentimes protested raising  concerns over social conditions in society such as racism and sexism.  They would hold protests, picket, or even march on the Mall in Washington D.C.   During this period of history, some social change was birthed  throughout the colleges and universities of the U.S through the way of  social movements.
Up  until just recently (e.g, Black Lives Matter), some people argue that  today’s students are not actively engaged in social change and  furthermore express little interest in promoting it.  Do you believe this to be a fact? For  those students who are involved in social change, it generally means  posting something on social media.  Does posting something on social  media truly  represent the same caliber of commitment and action to fighting  injustices compared to participating in a march or conducting a sit-in?
Are you personally active in promoting social justice?  If yes, what has motivated you to take action?  If no, why not?
Here’s one of my favorite poetic statements that I saw at the National Holocaust Museum in Washington D.C.
 

First they came for the Communists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Communist
Then they came for the Socialists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Socialist
Then they came for the trade unionists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a trade unionist
Then they came for the Jews
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Jew
Then they came for me
And there was no one left
To speak out for me

Would you consider becoming active in promoting social justice in our country and world?
