Interested in taking a 1 credit elective for Fall?
Community Organizing for Health Equity
This one-credit course will equip student leaders with the tools they need to organize to address the social justice and health equity issues they care about on campus and n the community. Students are drawn from across health professions from UW/WSU/EWU and Gonzaga and across programs from Medicine to Law to Sociology to learn the fundamentals of community organizing and prepare students to take action, providing a setting for inter-professional collaboration and shared learning.
From criminal justice to housing and healthcare access, the decisions we make about access, policy and resources have a huge effect on our health and well-being. These social determinants of health are the main drivers of health in our society. So how do we address big societal problems that produce health inequities? You have to organize.
Community organizing is about bringing people together to act on their shared interest. The course is taught by community organizers from the Spokane Alliance, a local affiliate of the IAF, the oldest community organizing network in the nation.
Classes are on Tuesdays, starting September 8 – November 8, 5:30-7:30. Questions: Luis Manriquez at firstname.lastname@example.org
