How To Make A Social Social Change?" Course"
As part of theThe Social Justice Centers' Activity, we have established social change courses that take place in different parts of the country. Recently, we have established a Social Change Course in Rishon Le'Zion. In these courses of 7-8 sessions, we give people the tools and the knowledge that are required to make a change. The aim is to create local groups that will hopefully continue to act for a more just society in Israel. The sessions' educational content includes a social-economic analysis of Israel, a local point of view on the relevant city, learning about protests and struggles that succeeded to make a change and organizing to act as a group.
