Social Justice Action Planning

Working on your action project for your Social Justice class? We can help! In this workshop we invite youth to dig deep into the issues they care about, why they’re important, and how to plan effective, meaningful, and actionable projects addressing these issues. How do we make sure our solutions are equitable instead of perpetuating inequalities? Why is it important to focus on justice as much as charity? How do we take local action on global issues? We explore privilege and power and our capacity to effect change! We connect youth to existing social justice movements and inspire action!
