ACTIVISM DISCUSSION

Before completing this assignment, students are expected to read the assigned articles for this week and view/listen to the weekly lecture (Modules tab on Carmen).

In this discussion you are expected to write an informative essay (250 word minimum). Please use information from the lecture, assigned readings, and other websites to develop your reasoning. Spend some time researching a business or organization that is focused on food or retail activism (please do not select an organization used as an example in the lecture).* Include all of the following and separate each item by bullet points or numbers:

1) The name of the organization/business and the issue/cause they are trying to solve or improve. 2) How does the organization go about making a difference – what is their process? 3) Do you think the organization is making an impact on the food or retail industry? How so? 4) List your word count. 5) References for your information – you must have at least one reference for your information.

To post: Click on the Discussions tab on Carmen. Select the “Assignment: Activism Discussion – Group 1.” The next screen will read ”Since this is a group discussion, each group has its own conversation for this topic. Here are the ones you have access to: Activism Discussion – Group 1.” Click on your group. Scroll down and click Reply.

*If you are unsure how to start this assignment, consider selecting an issue/cause (ex. GMO) and search the internet for an organization related to that particular cause (ex. google “company that does not use GMO”). Once you find a company related to the cause/issue, visit the company website and learn more about their process.
