The Transformative Justice Coalition (TJC)
"Transform yourself to transform the world." ~ Grace Lee Boggs?
Choose your own adventure. The TJC is a semester to one yearlong journey with multiple unique stops along the way. It begins with an exploration of one's own identity. It continues with your choosing a specific social justice movement and exploring the ways that movement impacts individual communities and society as a whole. Finally it culminates with your reflecting on your experience and sharing your learning forward. It's an opportunity for deep social justice learning and engagement with mentors to guide you through. #EmersonTJCGoDeeper

- Help students to locate themselves in the work
- Provide context, foundation, and an entry-point for students who are new to the work
