ADSO 1357 Social Change in Action (Fall/Spring: 4 )
What can ordinary people do to bring about social change? In this course you'll learn about the history and theory of community organizing and campaign strategy, through readings, interactive exercises and discussion. You will also gain practical skills in participatory decision-making, strategizing, publicity, alliance-building and more, through trainings and a hands-on collective action project. The class will choose a current injustice as an issue, set a goal, design a campaign strategy, then carry out the first steps of that campaign.
