Rise Up - Part Two
Rise Up Part Two is the culmination of a two-day social justice simulation teaching students how to build people power and work on behalf of a cause. In the first day students learned strategies and tactics and began collaborating to build a movement and become a positive force for change. During the second day of the simulation the game play becomes more extensive. A review of the iconography of social movements through history is also included.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt once said “in these days of difficulty, we Americans everywhere must and shall choose the path of social justice… the path of faith, the path of hope, and the path of love toward our fellow man.” In keeping with the SMA mission, this seminar helps students learn how to become “powerful agents of change.”
