Those who disagree with you are likely to come at you with statistics, figures, numbers, and their overall perspective of the situation. Don't let that dissuade you.
The internet is a powerful tool. It has helped to organize events, bring people together, and much more. Use it to your advantage. With the gun violence issue being so prevalent, search up things you're curious about. If you truly want to understand the issue, look up statistics. Look up opinion pieces. Look up solutions. The world is at your fingertips, don't be afraid to dive in.
DISCLAIMER: Be on the lookout for misleading information. If something appears to be off, probe for more details.
It's not that scary. The individuals whose perspective differs from yours have developed it over time, and likely feel strongly about the subject. Converse with them. You'll not only learn about their point of view, you'll likely expand your understanding of the issue.
Someone needs to. Why can't it be you?
It's time to be heard. Contact your legislators, and communicate your views on the subject. You can do this over email, over the phone, or even in their office.
If they refuse to listen, let people know. Hold protests, push the discussion yourself, and demonstrate your message to the public. If all else fails, vote them out.
This is a long form text area designed for your content that you can fill up with as many words as your heart desires. You can write articles, long mission statements, company policies, executive profiles, company awards/distinctions, office locations, shareholder reports, whitepapers, media mentions and other pieces of content that don’t fit into a shorter, more succinct space.
Articles – Good topics for articles include anything related to your company – recent changes to operations, the latest company softball game – or the industry you’re in. General business trends (think national and even international) are great article fodder, too.
Mission statements – You can tell a lot about a company by its mission statement. Don’t have one? Now might be a good time to create one and post it here. A good mission statement tells you what drives a company to do what it does.
Company policies – Are there company policies that are particularly important to your business? Perhaps your unlimited paternity/maternity leave policy has endeared you to employees across the company. This is a good place to talk about that.
Executive profiles – A company is only as strong as its executive leadership. This is a good place to show off who’s occupying the corner offices. Write a nice bio about each executive that includes what they do, how long they’ve been at it, and what got them to where they are.
