2010 Social Justice Challenge

The 2010 Social Justice Challenge sounds so interesting! Here is what it is all about:

We have chosen to focus each month on a different area of social injustice in the world. During that month, we are asking that you read something from the list of resources or watch something suggested by that month’s host. That will complete step one of this challenge: Learn.

Throughout the month we will also be posting ways you can make a difference in this area. Don’t worry, we will provide several different options at many different levels of commitment. The important thing is to take an action step towards doing something to change things! That fulfills step 2–Take Action.

This challenge is close to my heart because I teach at a school with high poverty, homelessness, and a large refugee population. The things many of the kids in my class have been through are amazing. It is a testament to the human spirit how resilient kids can be. Check out the Social Justice Challenge website to see all the themes they will be covering throughout the year.

  1. I thought about joining this, but I don’t think I will. I have a lot of other challenges going on, and many of them are social-injustice based already, and this challenge just looks way too complicated. I’ve shied away from complicated challenges this year.

  2. Thank you so much for posting about the challenge! And I’m thrilled that you are joining! I’m so excited with the action step that I think has the potential to change us in ways that we don’t even know are possible.

  3. Amanda – I do think I may be over doing it with challenges! I was going to try to cut back but I think I”m doing more than before!

    Natasha – This challenge covers so much that I deal with on a daily basis. I’m so excited to be part of it.
