Homeschool Social Justice

Social justice issues occur globally, nationally, regionally, locally, and within groups. These issues are a result of unequal wealth and resource distribution, unfair treatment of individuals with differing traits (race, culture, sexual orientation, religion, etc.), and laws that support segregation.  It's important for our kids to understand the things that are going on around them and their place in the world and in their community.  Young people are indoctrinated constantly by advertising, images, and social and news media.  It is our responsibility to our children to widen the lens through which they see.  OUR world's problems cannot be solved by the institutions that created them, because these institutions are stuck in old ways of thinking.  They know how to make the systems easier, more convenient and more efficient, but they don’t know how to help the people they hurt or how to save the environments they damage.  In order for our country's consciousness to shift, people with privilege need to see the problems of the people without privilege as their own.  All it takes to change the world is a person who recognizes a problem, looks for a solution, and articulates those solutions with passion and intelligence.Please join us for open dialogue on action steps to make this possible.
