This workshop considers the critical skills, knowledge, and cultural values we can teach in the classroom to cultivate and support students who want to enter the political arena with principled organizing and actions. Students' interests in moral crises have surfaced nationwide. For many, it is their first foray into civic action. Topics to be covered include how to use recently produced (short!) videos and discussion guides of grassroots activists to explore the bridge between academic scholarship and public debates surrounding the economic, political, racial, and cultural dimensions of public life.
