Abstract

Our main goal is to fight against the inequities present within our country and communities. The disadvantages that marginalized individuals encounter create obstacles that make obtaining success extremely difficult, and for some, impossible. We aim to challenge the lack of representation of middle and lower class citizens by proposing to federally dismantle lobbying within America’s Executive, Judicial, and Legislative Branches. This all attempts to accomplish the UN Sustainable Goal of reduced inequalities. Lobbying is not only immoral but discriminates against individuals who do not have sufficient funds to engage in it, which in this case happens to be a majority of the population. The influence that lobbyists have on today’s government prohibits the lower and middle class from being heard, and their voices are as a result are being disregarded. We believe that outlawing lobbying will create an even playing field where every individual has an opportunity to be properly represented. We also aim to implement equity within our own communities by attempting to spread IMSA’S Equity & Inclusion Program to other schools. We aim to work with Dr. Coleman, Director of Equity and Inclusion at IMSA, to spread justness within all school communities. We strive to present our research and ideologies to other schools in hopes of building bridges of communication between School Administrators and its students, especially those who are underrepresented.
