Civil Rights, Civic Action

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This event is organized by the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum.

This program helps students make connections between the organized nonviolent actions of the civil rights movement and civic action for justice today. Students will "meet" three young people through primary and secondary source material and learn how they used the tools of democracy to fight for justice and equality. In a final activity, students reflect on a local, national, or international issue of concern and identify a civic action they can take to help address it.

Please note that an additional registration step is required for this event. Please register for this event here to receive the Zoom meeting details.
