Feedback form is now closed.
Kids have a strong sense of knowing when things aren’t fair. They will not hesitate to voice their displeasure but may not know what to do beyond that. Strong democracies require citizens who are active, engaged and work in solidarity to address injustices and to stand up for the principles of democracy. This workshop, developed by the Aspen Foundation for Labour Education, highlights stories of young people who stepped up to take meaningful action to address injustices. Their stories will inspire your students, knowing that there are kids like them who have taken a variety of actions that they might taking in their own communities. Participants will receive a complementary resource package that can be used to meet learning outcomes for various grades in social studies.
