Really enjoyed having a deeper understanding of the fundamentals in social justice work, loved hearing from community organizers on the ground. Found the lectures to be a little boring but was happy to have control to go back and review and read the transcript. Would recommend if you're looking to enhance your understanding of basic social justice organizing concepts and take inventory of your organizational skills.

I highly recommend this course to anybody interested in social justice, community organising and social work. It was a great introduction to the process and steps needed to take action with a group of persons sharing the same concerns. The testimonies of persons involved in community organising projects and in facilitating intergroup dialogue were very interesting and I learnt a lot from their experiences.

I really like all the information in this course. But the instructor, Dr. Barry C talks wayyyyy to slow. I feel tired listening to him even though he's saying things I am interested in. It takes longer than necessary to say these things!

its a bit hard to stay interested because it is very obvious that the professors are reading from a teleprompter. The assignments are very easy but hardly engaging
