Extending the Circle of We: Democracy and Diversity in the Sunshine State

Five week-long teacher seminars exploring various aspects of Florida's cultural diversity and the historic events, people, values, and institutions that have shaped the state's multicultural identity.

One of our nation’s most remarkable achievements has been its extension of democratic rights and citizenship to diverse groups of people. From the Constitutional Convention, to women’s suffrage and civil rights, to immigrants seeking both economic opportunity and refuge, the range of people included in “We the People” has been consistently debated and redefined. This proposal outlines five weeklong teachers seminars. These seminars will explore various aspects of Florida’s cultural diversity and the historic events, people, values and institutions that have shaped our multicultural identity.
