Guest Speaker

Share your story of advocacy and civic action in Massachusetts with young students

Children Discovering Justice (CDJ) is a free civics-based curriculum for elementary classrooms across Massachusetts. The curriculum culminates in a civic action project where students apply their learning to advocate for a justice issue within their community. We are seeking guest speakers to feature within the lessons so students can learn from real examples of people in their community involved in local advocacy and change making (movements, campaigns, organizations, protests, school or local government, etc.). See details below and reach out to if you are interested in participating.

Guest Speaker Information


People in Massachusetts involved in local activism and advocacy. We are specifically looking to diversify our speaker library to include more young people.


A recorded Zoom interview for elementary students across Massachusetts to watch and learn from as they prepare for their own class advocacy project.

When & Where:

The time commitment is 30-40 mins which includes a prep call/zoom and the 20 min virtual recorded interview over Zoom. 


Telling your story of advocacy will inspire young students to take action on issues that matter to them. Students will see that young people do make a difference in the community. You will be credited in the curriculum and all videos will be shared for approval before use.
