Advocacy for Policy Change: Classroom to courtroom

Ethics Center initiative puts students on front lines of social justice

Students are taking on the world in Professor Melissa Stimell’s class, Advocacy for Policy Change. The centerpiece of an Ethics Center initiative, students in the course conceive solutions to real-world injustices, with help from their professor and prominent guest lecturers. Students then take their fight to the State House and courts, and learn firsthand how to turn a bill into a law.
