More about the SP2 Penn Top 10 Initiative:
“SP2 Penn Top 10 Social Justice & Policy Issues for the 2016 Presidential Election” is a multimodal initiative in which experts from SP2 analyze and address some of the most crucial social justice and policy issues in our nation.
These “Top 10” issues -- including homelessness, mass incarceration, child poverty and maltreatment, mental health treatment, gun policy -- are accompanied by thought-provoking scholarly essays, abridged essays, educational animations, “Behind the SP2 Penn Top 10” author interviews, author biographies, a social journalism fellowship, and more.
The SP2 Penn Top 10 will also be releasing a dynamic, user-friendly workbook in May and will contain clear-cut essays on the issues, key statistics, policy recommendations and voter resources to inform conversations and decisions leading up to the 2016 presidential election.
The SP2 Penn Top 10 seeks to educate, enlighten, & empower a diverse audience of voters & policymakers from all walks of life.
