Showing that a problem exists, explaining the proposed solution(s), and justification of why it matters or show that a community often looked at in a negative light has very real positive elements to be considered.
The need for presence – Your purpose is to persuade people to act. You will want to appeal to the audience’s hearts, imaginations, and even their intellect. This is where you employ the rhetorical moves we studied in paper one.

Possible future consequences: Use the possibility of negative consequences if no action is taken as a way to support your argument.
