please review the following website for more information about social movements:
Requirements: Select any type of collective action (e.g., riots, panics) or social movement (e.g., civil rights, animal rights, environmental justice, etc.) of interest to you. Prepare a 3 to the 4-page description of the collective action or social movement, and also provide a sociological explanation of your selected action or movement. In your paper, include and underline ten or more sociological terms, theories, and/or research that you think apply, and explain how these apply. For example, conflict theorists would argue that societal change is inevitable, as people deal with inherent conflicts and contradictions. Conflict theorists do not see the status quo as the ultimate goal of social organization.
