Introduction to Social Justice and Advocacy

We will be covering a wide range of topics during the semester and learning about social justice issues in our profession and advocacy strategies. In our class discussions and in written assignments, you are encouraged to be reflective and to share of yourself to the extent that you are comfortable, as well as to discuss and critique the information that we cover. The most critical aspect of becoming an effective social change agent is to continuously acknowledge, take responsibility, and make change regarding one’s own personal privilege. It’s a tough and exciting road to travel, and I look forward to our time as fellow travelers on the journey of advocacy.
