I’ve been using a lot of “we”s in this website and on all of our various pages and accounts and whatnot. But this is vaguely dishonest, because the “we” up to this point is basically a “me” after all. And I need a team.
The Advocate has the potential to make our campus a better place by raising awareness for issues on campus and around the world, and by highlighting the good work of members of the Stony Brook community. Do you have a passion for human rights and social change? Do you enjoy writing, editing, photography, film, or design? Does this sound enough like an ad? Click here to express your interest in joining The Advocate’s original executive board, and be one of the people who pushes this little website into a positive force for change in our community.
I know that sometimes it feels like the world is just a little broken, and there’s nothing we can do about it. But social change starts with us, the young people of the world. We have the privilege to be able to go to college and build a network of spectacular people. Let’s use that platform to make a difference. I hope you’ll consider joining me on this roller coaster of being hopelessly optimistic!
