Movement, particularly increased movement, has been a hallmark of adolescence—this includes more autonomy to go on one’s own, to walk home with friends, to drive, to relying less on one’s parents/guardians. In this lecture, we explore the connections between this increased movement in adolescence, alongside the connections of movement (and embodiment) to movements for social change and justice.

We look both at the significance of moving for these movements, such as why marches, die-ins, walk-outs, etc. are important embodied practices of social change movements and how adolescents have led the charge in recent (and not so recent) movements. We also look at how young people are embodying their faith and justice commitments in these movements.
