Sociology students seek to make a difference through websites

MJC students enrolled in Dr. J. Douglas Penn's Sociology of Family, and Race and Ethnicity courses are given the option to be an activist by contributing to their community via research. Over the last two years, students choosing activism have developed and continue to maintain two group project websites that seek to make a positive difference on campus, in the community and beyond.
