Modern Day Advocacy

Jasmine Epps-Flowers, Staff Writer


You say you are woke

but clearly you are asleep

your social justice actions

should be more than just tweets

If you will not show up

do not expect people to relieve their trauma

to make it seem like you care

educating others is important but just be aware

change will not come from you arguing with strangers   

if you will not act why do you speak

Ask yourself

who is benefiting from this kind of advocacy
