A Three-Semester Teaching Initative
HISTORY.

The timeline of American suffrage and what we can learn from civil rights organizations and initiatives of the past. OUR VOTE will mark the 100th-year commemoration of the 19th Amendment (allowing women the vote) and the 150th-year commemoration of the 15th Amendment (allowing non-white men the vote).

ADVOCACY.

The importance of community support and allegiance in the protection of democracy and human rights. This initiative focuses on and illuminates the impact of social justice advocacy, the democratic process and laws which both advance and restrict rights of citizenship and political access nationally.

JUSTICE.

The victories of suffrage and what can be achieved through advocacy. OUR VOTE allows the University opportunities to inform the student and campus community regarding issues of racial and gender justice, human rights, the power of voting and social and political inclusion and exclusion in contemporary life everywhere.
