The Moment

Civics for Democracy in a Time of Transformation and Possibility

In the new Fall 2023 issue of Learning for Justice magazine, Margaret Huang, president and chief executive officer of the Southern Poverty Law Center, emphasizes that, though challenging, this is also a time of great possibility. Huang explains her hopes: “When I look across our movement today, I see so many people of different races, genders, sexual orientations, abilities and backgrounds showing up as allies for one another in the fight for justice and liberation. … I’m excited that we’re tapping into the wisdom and energy of many generations to guide the fight ahead for our democracy.” 

This first cover story, along with LFJ Director Jalaya Liles Dunn’s Perspectives column and the One World poster sharing the words of Fannie Lou Hamer, opens our latest magazine's conversation on “Civics Education for Democracy.”
