Activism and Young Children

More children are getting involved in activism, whether with their parents or teenagers making their voice heard. But do they really consider why they are protesting? We can help our students understand what activism is all about, why people make their voice heard and the rich history of inspiring groups and individuals whose footsteps they are walking in. The social justice picture books will help give our students change to develop their knowledge and ask questions.
