centered around the various social and political injustices faced by minority groups, Awaken minorities is a blog published weekly with the goal of advocating change and encouraging the recognition of minority groups in the united states

An Introduction

Through this website, I fully expect to be able to voice my concerns about the world around me in a constructive environment. You will hear my thoughts on a variety of social and political issues, including the Black Lives Matter movement, the Dakota Pipeline, the President-Elect, Police Brutality, Islamophobia and issues most directly facing the minority communities in the United States today. Through these posts, I hope to gain a more thorough understanding of the issues facing our world today as well as communicate these issues to those unaware.
