For Goodness Sake, Why Don't We Give More Power to the People?
Focusing on the time period 1800 until the present, the learners will see how women and minority groups have used the nonprofit sector as an alternative power structure in American society. The learners will research the historical backgrounds of various minority groups and women, and cite events and leaders within various groups that brought about positive changes within American society. They will focus on the local community to see how positive changes occurred, and conduct a survey to see what changes still need to be implemented through the nonprofit power structure.
