This course presents advanced topics in macro social work practice. The topics may include emerging
macro practice issues and advanced application of specific methods.
This mini-course examines strategies for engaging and empowering community members to protect and promote civil rights in a society that is becoming more segregated and more diverse.
It considers core concepts of civil rights; models and methods of practice; roles of youth, community members, social workers, and other change agents; and perspectives on practice for a diverse democracy. The course will draw upon best practices from grassroots organizing, civic engagement, community service, youth development, and child welfare.
It places emphasis on “modern civil rights” as a movement that challenges discrimination based on race, ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation, and other social identities.
