Community Organizing 101 is for students wanting to develop skills, confidence, and knowledge to become empowered agents of change. Community organizing focuses on developing people’s civic agency or collective power. This requires more than “consuming” democracy---it means helping to create it. The course focuses on how to build organizations through which people can make their “voice” heard, and turn their values into action. Through readings, discussions, presentations, one-on-one relational meetings, and participating in a Community Campaign, students will become acquainted with the American community organizing tradition, learn organizing skills, and open the door to civic possibilities in the future. NOTE: This course has a $100 fee.
