Social Justice / Democracy

Social Justice and Democracy

Students engaged in how the pandemic highlighted and uncovered inequities and social disparities in the United States and the world. Instructors and Professors encouraged inquiries into Freedom of Speech, Black Lives Matter, police brutality, healthcare reform, voter suppression & voter safety, anti-masker ideology, as well as access to education. Students were asked to consider how monuments serve as markers of injustice as they grappled with the issue of whose narrative gets national attention. Additionally, students questioned how civic responsibility and personal freedom coexist during this historic time.
