ASHFORD SOC 320 Week 3 DQ 1 MADD Grassroots Movement to Policy

ASHFORD SOC 320 Week 3 DQ 2 Social Security

  • MADD: Grassroots Movement to PolicyGiven that grassroots organizations often do not have the expertise, stature, or other resources of larger, more institutional stakeholders, what tools do grassroots organizations have that enable them to successfully influence policy? To what degree do you think MADD has changed over its history from a grassroots organization to a more institutional stakeholder? How does this change what it does or how it functions?

  • Social SecurityPublic surveys indicate that ¾ of younger Americans think that Social Security is a “dead program.” What would make them have such a dim view? Does the strength of the American Association of Retired persons (AARP) play into this perspective? What are some alternatives to the program as it is now? Should alternatives be considered and why?
