Frisco Renaissance Twitter Question of the Day: How does social change happen?

Here is what you all had to say

al_jieh needs to be started by people with ethics, education, drive, resources, belief, & heart.

kimunication @Nina_Parks Instead of waiting for the gov't to help us we work within our communities to show them what we're worth. It starts with not accepting handouts and being looked upon as needy people. The pity parties must end. It's not as if we live in an impoverished part of the country yet the mindstate is poor and "less than worthy" waiting for help.

SabaTheG Frisco renaissance; Love it. For me it started when I recognized change was needed.

JBillion Change Happens when people realize they have the power to change things(mainly the youth)

iameevents social change will happen whn young ppl stand up & realize were only killin off a race of gr8 ppl, must recognize self value

alteredground it all Starts with one. One being able to influence the rest. Then the movement will happen. Change mindsets, change stereotypes it also starts with one thought, one idea, inspiration and Want & need. When the community come together change will come

misschief916 it begins with the individual. Understanding the problems of society and truly believing you can make a difference. also raising awareness of the severity of these problems..

Prince_Aries I think we gotta make it happen

BeatKnoxX well collective change begins on an individual level in a contagious way inspiring others to change as well. if the goal is of collective interest and the change is believed to be possible to achieve.

Made in SF

Here is my very first photo installation, the theme of the photo show was Made in SF, organized by the wonderful women at Made Jewelry. The Made in SF theme that I was given was SF community. So I put together a collection of some of my favorite shots from being around SF and from, different events like, the SF school board meeting where Ethnic studies got approved as a mandatory part of our high school curriculum , budget rallies, food pantries and other community actions. SF has a strong history of activist and organizers that bring about change in themselves, their community, their city, state and country. The spirit of SF is needed more than ever in this climate of change to ensure that we make moves towards a better tomorrow.

Are you made in SF?

Happy Mother's Day
