Modern Day Oppression - Steiert: Home

Assignment Overview

You, in small groups, will help our class explore the complex reality that many people around the world are living by researching a modern day situation of oppression. Your task will be to tell the story of your people who are suffering oppression.  Help us see reality through the eyes of the poor for whom Christ had a special love & care.  You will be asked to place these people’s stories into the context of their region, to explain the violence these people experience, to identify those who are perpetuating it & explain the reality of those who are victimized by it.  You will explain both the historical roots of this oppression and how the principles of Catholic Social Teaching challenge us to overcome the oppression.  You, in small groups, will help our class explore the complex reality that many people around the world are living by researching a modern day situation of oppression.
