Social justice

The Report for America reporter at WNIJ will gather stories related to social justice and identity. This journalist will give voice to those who seek change -- not merely for the sake of conversation, but to validate their experience, and give incentive for them to speak up and improve their lives.

For some kids, summer means packing your shorts and bug spray and heading off to camp. For some local teachers, camp means early morning lectures and late night discussions about race, gender, and privilege. At least it did last week at Northern Illinois University. WNIJ’s Susan Stephens stopped by Social Justice Summer Camp for this week’s Friday Forum.
