New Class: People's History: Struggles for Social & Economic Justice. Sign Up Now.

Now is the time to register for a new Peaceworks class, “A People’s History of the United States Movements for Social & Economic Justice.” This seven-session, Wednesday evening class begins on Sept. 26 and runs through Nov. 28 (taking weeks off for major speakers and Thanksgiving). The class runs from 7- 8:45 p.m.

Using selected readings from Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States, this seven-session class will provide insights into people’s struggles for justice. We will explore the origins of progressive moments, their successes, their defeats and their ongoing struggles. Understanding the roots of these movements and their histories is essential for those who hope to effectively engage as participants in contemporary movements.

Enrollment is open to all. We do ask a $20 registration fee from community members; $10 for students and those who can’t afford $20. Please sign up at the Peace Nook.
