Fighting for Democracy Pre-visit Workshop

Sign-up for a FREE Pre-Visit Workshop

Saturday, January 15, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

WHAT IS FIGHTING FOR DEMOCRACY?
For hundreds of years people have sought a home and future in the United States of America. They came, and still come, in pursuit of freedom and democracy. Yet, the dream of democracy is not without its struggle. Against the backdrop of World War II, a segregated America, and the Civil Rights movement of the 1960’s, ordinary people—through the decisions they made and actions they took—extended democracy’s reach for all.

FIGHTING FOR DEMOCRACY is an experiential exhibition based on the lives, actions, and decisions of a diverse group of individuals who sought equal rights for their families and communities during World War II.

Aimed at middle and high school students, FIGHTING FOR DEMOCRACY offers hands-on experience in exploring about how women and minorities have expanded the meaning of "we" in "we, the people."

When visiting FIGHTING FOR DEMOCRACY, teachers, and group leaders facilitate their students' experience in the exhibition space, allowing educators to custom-tailor an educational focus to meet their curricular goals and to deepen their students' understanding of democracy.

Before bringing student groups to FIGHTING FOR DEMOCRACY, educators are strongly encouraged to sign up for a free professional development workshop. These workshops will provide an orientation to the exhibition, preparation on facilitating an interactive experience, and introduction to activity ideas from the FIGHTING FOR DEMOCRACY Educator's Resource Guide that can be done before, during and after a visit to the exhibition.
