This course explores the many social justice issues facing the United States and the world today. A primary goal of the first semester is to offer the students an all-encompassing view of inequality in our society by examining major issues such as racism, privilege, and oppression across historical and cultural boundaries. The second semester of this course expands upon this foundation by providing a closer look at more micro social justice issues, including environmental justice, transsexuality/gender identity and domestic violence. Students wrap up the course as activists with a project that allows them to approach a social justice issue of their choice and create a sustainable action plan.
