Students in this seminar will be placed in a variety of sites where they will participate in the education and organizing work of a variety of labor movement organizations. Past placements have included Teamsters for a Democratic Union, Labor Notes, and several unions engaged in organizing work in our area. This fall, students will be primarily placed at the Washtenaw County Workers’ Center.

Although some of these sites may involve some direct service work, the Organizing for Social Justice program area emphasizes making change at a systemic level and developing a theory and practice of community organizing and civic engagement. Seminars are arranged by topic area with a cluster of site options usually available within that seminar.

Like the other students enrolled in SOC 389, those placed within Organizing for Social Justice are responsible for attending the weekly seminar, Th 4-5:30pm, as well as participating at a designated community site four hours per week. In addition, students will complete weekly readings and reflective journal assignments, two other assignments, and a final group project.

In order to participate in this section, you must contact Amy Knife Gould (akgould@umich.edu) and briefly illustrate why you want to participate in this section.

If you have questions, contact Amy Knife Gould (akgould@umich.edu). Please refer to the specific section number about which you are inquiring.
