Educating for Action
Strategies to Ignite Social Justice
The pursuit of freedom and justice is a timeless effort, but new activists may not know where to begin, while more experienced ones often become jaded or fatigued. The task of constructing a new society free from oppression and inequality can be overwhelming. Tools for facilitating motivation, engagement and communication can mean the difference between failure and success for activists and social movements.
Educating for Action collects the voices of activists whose combined experience in confronting injustice has generated a wealth of key insights for creating social change. This practical, hands-on guide explores such topics as:
- Community organizing and direct democracy
- Conflict negotiation, communication and rhetoric
- Law, the educational system and lifestyle activism
- Social media skills, conference planning and online organizing.
Written in an inspirational tone, Educating for Action consciously straddles the line between street activism and classroom instruction. Bridging the gap between these two worlds makes for an engaging and instructive manual for social justice, helping students, teachers, and larger activist communities turn their idealism into action.
