I am reimagining a world where social justice education is made easier and awareness is taken more seriously. This concept affects all people but specifically targets young social media users, allowing youth to learn and create change through technology in a more effective way. My design is an app that functions as a database for learning about social justice initiatives in easy, organized ways that are best designed for the user. It also encourages continual progress and education with streak engagement features. This design allows more people to become educated about social justice initiatives and prevents performative activism and burnout commonly associated with social media and online activism. It allows everyone to have a chance to learn about world issues in a way that best suits them, every day.
