Handout C: A Petition

Directions: Together with your group, create a petition regarding a social or political issue that matters to you. Your issue can be something pertaining to your school, community, state, or the nation. You should first brainstorm topics that matter to the members of your group. Then, decide on one issue and form a group position about the issue. Finally, state what you’d like to see done about this issue (a law, a policy, etc.).
