Take a close look at the current issues facing American society today. A current issue is something happening right now that affects a specific group or society at large. These issues are often controversial, with strong opinions on all sides.
A current issue doesn’t necessarily mean that the question is new. Some topics, such as abortion, have been discussed in society for decades. Other issues have surfaced with the development of technology. For example, the problem of cyberbullying has emerged with widespread use of the internet.
Numerous controversial issues face American society today. These include animal rights, civil rights, capital punishment, domestic and sexual violence, climate change, gun violence, health care, homelessness, immigration, privacy, pollution, poverty, racism, and terrorism. Global issues also challenge the international community. China, India, the United Kingdom, and many other countries are addressing controversies that impact the entire world.
