Claims making is the process of convincing the public and important public officials that a particular issue or situation should be defined as a social problem. Claims are often made by ordinary people via activism and with support of mass media through slogans, hashtags, and logos/images (see image below as an example).
Select a social problem and identify the slogans, hashtags, and logos/images that help frame the problem.
How do these slogans, hashtags, and logos/images define the problem?
How do the slogans, hashtags, or logos/images attempt to raise concern for the problem?
Do you think the slogans, hashtags, or logos/images are effective?
Is the image or definition limited in any way?
Would you make any changes, additions, or subtractions to the slogans, hashtags, and logos/images?
