Student and Community Organizing for Social Change
De Loney, M. (PI)
In this course, we will learn from long-time organizers and change agents by studying movement histories, participating in skill-building workshops, and engaging directly in movement-building work with community partners from the Bay Area. Through selected readings curated in collaboration with community partners, we will dive into the stories, tactics, principles, methodologies, and theories of what it means to build community, enact social change, and challenge institutional forms of knowledge production. The goal of this course is to provide us with strategic frameworks and hands-on experiences of creating alternative futures in the now.
