Details:

Specialists in communication are often hired to clean up problems
created by unthoughtful messaging. While advocates dedicate
significant amounts of time and energy promoting causes, they often
struggle to clearly identify their logical positions. To further the
problem, in light of clear arguments advocates commonly utilize
informal fallacies to persuade their target audiences. These
weaknesses tend to create easily avoidable communications crises but
the first step is to identify the communicative problems.

For this assignment you should identify a social issue you are
personally interested in learning more about, advocating for the
cause, or are against, and identify their fallacious reasoning.

In 500-750 words:

  1. Research an advocate (individual or organization) that
    promotes a relevant social issue. Identify the organization and
    explain the relevancy of the social issue.
  2. Show the
    steps you took to translate the position/argument you researched
    into a clear logical form by writing out the logical premises and
    conclusions from the material presented by the advocate.
  3. Identify a minimum of five informal fallacies that are made by
    the advocate. Explain the fallacies themselves and how each
    functions.
