Throughout history, young people have been on the front lines of movements for racial justice, education equity, and LGBTQ+ rights. Students toppled unjust laws, taught themselves banned history, and brought their power to the polls. Today’s youth are once again leading efforts to reclaim our schools from political bigotry. This course explores the strategy, history, and art form of youth organizing from school boards to state capitols.

Ed Justice University is designed and led by student organizers who have halted book bans, defeated Don’t Say Gay laws, taught banned history, and secured the largest public education budget in Georgia history.
