1960s: Dazed and Confused

CRISIS COMMITTEE - ADVANCED

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere -MLK Jr.

 

It is December of 1962 in the United States, and social unrest is stronger than ever. Rallies have become riots, bus rides have become bloodbaths, and figureheads have become fallen heroes. Over the course of the decade, the fearful and the fearless will unite on all fronts, from communist scares to anti-war protests. From JFK’s promise to make it to the moon to the Greensboro Lunch Counter sit-ins, it’s a gripping time to be American.

 

With no clear way forward, delegates must seek to create peace and progress in the whirlwind of the sixties. The fast-paced, dynamic decade is full of domestic and international disputes, where you as delegates will assume the roles of some of the biggest game-changers in American history. Houston, we have a problem.

Note: This committee has already been held in 2019, during Jackrabbit MUN I. Background guides for 2020 will be released soon.
