My generation — Gen Z — is one of the most progressive generations according to a nationwide poll conducted in 2021 by MTV and AP-NORC. Born between 1997 and 2010, we have embraced a new sort of activism in our pursuit for social justice. Over the past three years, I have seen my generation step up to the plate as we look to do our part in changing the world for the better. I have witnessed friends and classmates work to resolve issues of injustice within my own school. Personally, I’ve answered the call to action by working to organize events that bring attention to our most pressing issues like immigration and racial injustice. Through organizing protests, creating different school advocacy clubs, and speaking out in our own lives, Gen Z has been able to break the cycle of complacency. This pushback against complacency concerning justice issues is what Gen Z is most known for.
