Exploring Activism

 

LWVMC members, in partnership with Dublin-Scioto High School A.P. US History teachers, develeped a lesson unit for high school students on exploring activism. All materials are available for free, below to download.

Members of the League of Women Voters are everyday citizens who choose to be activists in the fight for good government. League members actively lobby for voting rights, congressional and state redistricting reform, individual rights, child welfare, affordable housing, comprehensive and reliable public transit, and clean air and water. They also study ballot issues and educate voters about these issues by organizing open meetings and public forums where all sides are represented. In keeping with the League’s tradition of citizen activists who fight for good government and work to educate and inform voters, this unit will provide students with an opportunity to explore activism and its effect in bringing about change.
