Students will engage in the process of social justice activism by choosing a topic that reflects a social problem/injustice that is current and relevant to the world today. Recent topics that students have focused on include women's reproductive rights, discrimination against immigrants, police brutality, and sexual assault. Using their chosen injustice as their speech topic, the students will craft presentations through use of personal narratives, scholarly research, and current events.
