Students Learn to Use ACTIVISM for Positive Social Change

Students in AP Language and Composition; Politics, Principles, and Public Policy; and Environmental Biology worked on long-term projects focused on the ways in which activism can be used to produce positive social change. As part of this project, a panel on public advocacy and activism, featuring Pennsylvania’s Second Lady, Gisele Fetterman, environmental activist and filmmaker Mark Dixon, WT alumna and Community Development Coordinator for Operation Better Block Gabrielle DeMarchi, and local artist and activist Ebtehal Badawi, engaged with students on how they became activists and the tactics they employ in order to advance causes of importance to them.
