Here are some of the sites I have been looking at:

A lot of these sites discuss what you can do to help spread the word to end the world. They also hold advertising graphics which I find very interesting. I have also included a link to the Open Letter to Ann Coulter which inspired me to have this be my focal topic, as well as Ann’s reaction to the backlash for her calling the President the r-word. Next, I included a link to the Spread the Word campaign’s YouTube channel, where they create a digital narrative using celebrities and real people to announce why you should spread the word to end the word. All of these sites have used some sort of digital literacy to try and get the message spread to end the word. I am extremely interested in how they are able to tell their story through just a poster or YouTube video.
