The Social Justice BootcampSocial Justice Bootcamp

On Friday, May 27, 2022, The Judge Alexander Williams Jr. Center hosted the annual 2022 Social Justice Bootcamp. The Social Justice Bootcamp trains students on social justice advocacy and provides students the necessary tools to advocate for change in their communities. By partnership with Douglass High School in Baltimore City, the Center educated students about opportunities to amplify their voices for systems change through social justice advocacy. The curricula focused on the five elements of social justice education:

  1. Content Mastery

  2. Critical Thinking and Analysis of Oppression

  3. Action and Social Change

  4. Personal Reflection

  5. Awareness of Multicultural Group Dynamics 

 

Additionally, as developing Social Justice Engineers, participating students selected one of five critical focus areas to investigate throughout this immersive boot camp experience:

  1. Climate Change and Environmental Sustainability

  2. Racial (In)justice

  3. Epidemic Gun Violence

  4. Voting Rights and Civic Engagement

  5. Public Health Equity and Outcomes Disparities 

 


We want to give a special thank you to AT&T and Christopher & Patricia Lambert for sponsoring this event and helping this idea come to fruition. Please reach out to Karen Bond at kybond [at] umd.edu for future partnership opportunities.
