Citizenship on the Edge. Sex/Gender/Race. APC/GSWS is partnering with the DCC for the 2016-2017 program

In its
2016-17 theme year, “Citizenship on the Edge: Sex/Gender/Race,” Penn DCC and
the Alice Paul Center examine the struggles of vulnerable groups to gain or
maintain their status as full citizens, recognizing at the same time that the
edge they inhabit can be a cutting edge.
