About This Collection
As we think about helping students develop and strengthen their civic voices, it's important to provide them with models who demonstrate how to use tools to improve the democratic society we live in, for all community members. As Paul Kivel once wrote, “Sometimes change comes not in the first round, but at the second, third or fourth. Change starts with one person questioning, challenging, speaking up and doing something to make a difference. We can each make a difference.” How are today’s students choosing to participate and making voices heard in their communities.
