Jenkins, D. (2018). A Critical Lens to Rethinking Power, Privilege and Inequity Language: “Systemically Dominant” and “Systemically Non-Dominant.” Share the Flame LLC: Camas, WA.
The Freedom Writers Project is an opportunity for the Augustana University and Washington High School (WHS) community to share their truth, story, and social justice experiences. This project provides Augustana and WHS students an outlet to reveal their passion for change while educating others on the experience of growing up and living in a society that still doesn’t treat everyone equally.
Although the most visible part of the Freedom Writers Project is a contest that will publish the best-told stories, we hope the project penetrates our culture and celebrates diverse voices and forms of expression.
Essays will be evaluated based on the richness of voice, storytelling ability, authenticity, and how well one speaks their truth.
