The Leadership and Justice: The Knowledge for Human Rights! Decal is a community-organizing and human rights course in which students learn the rhetoric and current debates about many social justice issues: human trafficking, immigration, income inequality, LGBTQ+ rights, feminism, international human rights, education policy, factory food farming, Islamophobia, and much more. Our DeCal facilitators employ a student-focused pedagogy and incorporate multiple modes of instruction like lectures, videos, role-playing, singing and drawing in order to maximize learning. In class, students will be able to participate in group activities including grassroots community activism, publications, music videos, and event organizing. More importantly, students will have the opportunity to learn about popular community organizing strategies so they can take meaningful action in their communities to address social justice and human rights issues. Past students have created awesome and impactful projects including Humanitarian Mapping, Operation Christmas Child, Project Unity, and Faces of Berkeley, among several. This course has been taught and refined many times and has received average ratings of 7/7 from previous students! Many students have found the information in this course helpful for other classes, various academic disciplines, and life. The facilitators enjoy teaching this course because education is a vehicle for empowerment and social change!
