View this discussion with members of the Council of Youth Research, a Los Angeles youth participatory action research (YPAR) community, on how this practice makes civic education authentic, relevant, and oriented toward social justice.

This is Part 2 of a 4-part series, Youth Led Inquiry, Connection and Action: Redesigning Civic Education for Participatory Politics, which focuses on successes and lessons learned from two long-running civic education initiatives that redesign civic learning opportunities to take advantage of digital opportunities for connection and social action, the Educating for Participatory Politics project, and the Council of Youth Research.
