This course is a collaboration between UCLA and Activist Graduate School, an online school that provides university caliber education targeted to the needs of social activists. The focus of this course will be Housing Justice, specifically the history of protest, theories of change, and strategies of advocacy and mobilization. Each session of the course will involve UCLA faculty as well as community-based scholars from the various housing movements here in Los Angeles. The entirety of the course will be filmed and then, in edited version, made available to activists and young professionals across the country.

Enrollment: This course is open to all graduate students at UCLA. Urban Planning graduate students can enroll directly in the course. Social Welfare and other graduate students should email the Institute on Inequality and Democracy (challengeineq@luskin.ucla.edu) to request a PTE for the course.
