Civil Rights and Social Justice Today

Enduring understandings: 
  • Although the issues have changed, civil rights and social justice issues remain relevant in our world today.
  • One's ethnic, racial, and/or religious backgrounds may affect one's response to civil rights and social justice issues; however, people of the same background do not necessarily all have the same response.
Essential questions: 
  • What are contemporary civil rights and social justice issues?
  • As a consequence of their histories of oppression, do Jews and African Americans have a greater responsibility to stand up for social justice and civil rights issues?
  • What are your priorities and responsibilities?
