VIDA Director's New Book Examines Ways to Challenge Power
Faculty member Cynthia Kaufman has a new book out that examines ways of challenging the power structures that underlie important social problems – including climate change, police abuse and economic inequity.
"Challenging Power: Democracy and Accountability in a Fractured World," was published in June by Bloomsbury and is Kaufman's fourth book on issues relating to activism or social change. She teaches philosophy at De Anza and is faculty director of the Vasconcellos Institute for Democracy in Action (VIDA), which sponsors a variety of civic engagement programs for students.
