    Class Virtual Protest
    (Allegheny College (Meadville, Pa.), 2020-07-09) Scerbo, Rosita; Creamer, Daphne
    In collaboration with my students in the course LS 193 04 Women and Ethnic Minorities in the Time of Coronavirus (Social Justice Seminar Series) we created and performed a CLASS VIRTUAL PROTEST. Students investigated the origin and history of protests and created their own protest signs. I encouraged my students to embrace causes that are not strictly or directly related to their own identity/personal experience (Ex. a male student should hold a sign saying "This is what a feminist look like"/"Feminism is for everybody"; a caucasian individual should hold a sign that says "Black Lives Matter", someone that doesn't belong to the LGBTQ community should hold a sign that says "Love is Love", and so on.) We discussed the need to learn how to stand up for issues that don't affect us personally, because this is the biggest meaning of the term empathy and allyship.
