Branch Out Alternative Breaks

Creating a community of active & educated individuals dedicated to the pursuit of social justice

Issue Education Ideas

Issue education helps us prepare for alternative breaks by learning in-depth about what we’ll encounter during the break.  Here’s where you as site leaders and participants can get resources about your issue to enrich your issue ed!  Just look at the list below for your issue of choice.

Please share any additional resources you’d found for issue education with us by emailing Melody Porter.
