This session is one of several organized for the purpose of providing grounded but critical discussion of public engagement and outreach opportunities, strategies, and challenges. Sessions build upon the experiences of panelists/facilitators and the sharing of perspectives from the audience to create a space where geographers can train each other, trade innovations and ideas, and negotiate practical and even political obstacles to public engagement in geography.
Colleges and universities are at the front lines in today’s labor movement as corporate interests and their political counterparts compete for control of institutions of higher education. Through social movement unionism, academic workers can organize to influence political and social change from the ground up. Are you interested in winning concrete improvements in people's lives and challenging oppression? In this participatory workshop with experienced labor organizers, hone key skills for building relationships, developing strategic campaigns, and engaging effectively as participants in grassroots movements.
