Advocacy@SST 2021

~~~~~~~~~ a message from the SSTACTvocates ~~~~~~~~~

Dear SST family,

I am Kylie Sim from S3-03, one of the ACE leaders in charge of the SSTACTvocates team.

This year, the SSTACTvocates team is starting a new initiative called Advocacy@SST, where SSTudents can submit their takes and opinions on issues they will like to advocate for, and have them featured on our Instagram page, @sstactvocates.

Through Advocacy@SST, we aim to encourage and inspire every SSTudent to contribute to the local and global community by advocating for a cause through social media. Furthermore, we hope to provide students with a platform that helps empower them to advocate for different issues for the betterment of society by ensuring that their voices are heard.

All you need to do is:

  1. Submit a topic of your choice along with relevant information into the Google form.

  2. The SSTACTvocates team will pick a submission and you will work with the SSTACTvocates team to design a post, create a poster, or even film a video.

  3. Once your content has been approved, it will be posted on our Instagram page @sstactvocates immediately!

Some minor guidelines to take note of:

  1. Before submission, ensure that the information submitted is accurate and has examples and evidence.

  2. Ensure sensitivity is observed to the culture and context of the issue.

  3. Credit the source of information or data.

  4. Ensure that appropriate language is used and images used are not copyrighted.

You can submit the necessary information using the Google form found in the @sstactvocates account biography or by clicking here. You will be required to submit information about the cause you are choosing to advocate for, so you will have to include your resources, as well as the ways the audience can help!

Should you have any further enquiries, feel free to ask us via email at sstactvocates@gmail.com.

We look forward to seeing your take on different issues! Do also follow us at @sstactvocates for any future updates!

Thank you!

Warmest Regards,

Kylie Sim, S3-03
