A social issue or problem is an issue that has been recognized by society as a problem that is preventing society to function at an optimal level. It is important to understand that not all things that occur in society are raised to the level of social problems. Examples of social issues are: poverty, inequality, immigration, etc.
There are a variety of methods people use to combat social issues. Some people vote for leaders in a democracy to advance in their ideals. Outside the political process, people donate or share their time, money, energy, or other resources. This often takes the form of volunteering. Nonprofit organizations are often formed for the sole purpose of solving a social issue.
Governments will not always solve the social issue that affect the community. It is our duty also to contribute our part to treat these problems.
