This teaching guide is meant to speak toward our rights as Americans to take on the full responsibilities of democracy, referring to our civic participation in the creation and maintenance of systems of accountability in search of our collective safety. Lamenting the influences of systemic racism, police militarization, and the lack of political and judicial accountability, we recognize our role as educators to be able to teach the necessity to contribute to the intentioned dialogue through which our democracy will evolve. Focusing on the practical steps through which we voice and participate in this process, we make room for the full recognition of our humanity and the enactment of our power as societal change agents.
