An Introduction to Social Justice

Intro to Social Justice

Let’s talk about social justice.  What rights do you have as children? What rights do different groups of people have, and how did that happen? What rights are people STILL fighting for? How can we support that fight?

Join me as we take a look at children’s rights, animal rights, LGBTQ rights, women’s rights and racism. Each learning block represents one week of content, but you don’t have to do everything.

Pick some activities to get started, then come back for a deeper dive if a topic really sparks your interest.

FINAL PROJECT SNEAK PEEK

For your final project you’ll record yourself giving a short presentation on a social justice issue that’s important to you, to do your bit to make the world better for everyone!

Then upload it to the Google Classroom for a chance to be included in our Social Justice Camp highlights reel.
