This course is open to all interested in social change – whether as a community organizer, congregational leader, activist, scholar, non-profit leader, educator, or in other role/s. We will contrast a diversity of tactics used to assess organizational and community needs, mobilize religious and secular leaders, and build effective partnerships for justice. Central to this exploration is the idea that struggles for justice are interconnected, calling us to build new and diverse partnerships, and expanding analysis of how to make change. Together, participants will bring to life theologies for “collective liberation” – building a world that embodies the inherent worth and dignity of all beings. This interactive course requires reading in advance, and utilizes case studies of social change efforts which employ an intersectional approach: linking class, race, religion, gender, sexuality, dis/ability, ecological, and other issues and identities.
