Our youth leaders and staff are studying Dr. King’s Six Steps of Nonviolent Social Change during the To Us, You Matter Civic Engagement Summer.
They share some of their views on Step 1: Information Gathering.
To understand and articulate an issue, problem or injustice facing a person, community, or institution we must do research, investigate and gather all vital information from all perspectives. This will increase our understanding of the problem. We must become experts on our opponent’s position.
We are devoting the summer to studying, exploring and engaging in a process of self-transformation and civic engagement to make positive social change.
