This website is named after the high school course, Citizenship and Social Justice, that Seattle Public Schools unsuccessfully tried to extinguish stemming from the complaints of one white family opposed to study of race and racism.
However, the website is NOT connected to this course nor intended for student use.
Dedicated to social justice and civic engagement, it is the personal website of educator and writer Jon Greenberg.
