This curriculum introduces students to advocacy basics to help them understand how public policy works and how advocates work to influence policy. It also discusses how Judaism points to a path of social justice and collective action. The curriculum is flexible and allows educators to work with students on local, state or federal levels of government decision-making, as well as on specific social issues which are of interest. Students are encouraged to identify "hot button" issues they care deeply about to use as a case study throughout the year. The program may conclude with a trip to speak with local government representatives, to present the students' action plan and to discuss their chosen issue.
