Register for "Voices of Democracy: Race, Gender and Equality"

September 18, 2021, 8:45 AM CT - 12:30 PM CT | Hosted by: Wisconsin Council of Social Studies *Held Online

From the 17th century on, the realities of racial and gender inequality have been at odds with America’s self-understanding as a “new world” of opportunity for all. We will focus on key moments in the struggle to secure the natural rights of liberty and equality for all Americans.

This program will be conducted as a Socratic discussion, utilizing primary source documents as the only readings, and with the Discussion Leader facilitating the conversation, instead of lecturing or presenting. Registrants, therefore, are highly encouraged to read all the documents in advance and come ready with questions. All attendees will receive a Letter of Attendance at the end of the seminar.

"It gave me a better understanding of the Founders’ views. They saw that restricting religious liberty is not only wrong; it leads to animosity within society. This year, I will begin both my government class and my class on “Law and Modern Society” with George Washington’s Letter to the Hebrew Congregation at Newport." — Sean B.
