The School of Social Justice will release the second series of educational video podcasts in September 2023. The videos are a collection of interviews with changemakers fighting for justice.
“Throughout history, there have been conversations that have literally changed the world,” says Alvin Ross Carpio, Landecker Fellow and founder of the School of Social Justice. “My job as host is to seek that wisdom through conversation, and capture knowledge, and share this on video so our audiences can learn something, take action, and commit their life to making a difference.”
The series will feature a stellar cast of people: the first black woman to become deputy mayor of one of the most influential cities in the world; a barrister taking on the King and the police, fighting for people’s freedom of speech; and a Filipina human rights activist who campaigns against repressive regimes, and who witnessed her friends be killed for fighting for a cause.
These are only three of the eighteen social justice warriors interviewed in the video podcasts, sharing lessons about addressing injustices such as racism, sexism, environmental damage, human rights abuses, poverty, and inequality. The entire cast of teachers will be revealed later this year.
The School of Social Justice’s vision is a world where anybody can learn how to make a difference.
