Democracy depends on citizens to actively engage in society. In this course, we discuss social change and cohesion, civic responsibility, and the importance of active citizenship. How can we engage responsibly with others? How can we work towards building communities governed by fairness and mutual respect? How do we achieve inclusion and equality for those excluded from majority discourses and communities? We will explore these questions through active engagement with local students, activists, and communities.
