Activism Beyond the Classroom is a course taught by Dr. Krystal Strong and co-designed with Penn students and Philadelphia community activists. In working groups, we engage in participatory inquiry and public scholarship related to grassroots activism around education and social justice. Activism Beyond the Classroom asks how we might form the coalition, theory, and praxes to change our collective social condition.
