To complete this assignment, select a federal policy from Congress.gov that targets the form of oppression and discrimination you described in Unit 2 (for example, the Americans with Disabilities Act, Veterans Millennium Healthcare Act, Affordable Care Act (ACA), Adoption and Safe Families Act, Medicare, Medicaid, Temporary Aid to Needy Families Act, or Social Security Act). Then, complete the following: Describe the policy you have chosen and its connection to the social justice problem that was the focus of the previous assignment. This policy must be enacted—in other words, it must be passed legislation. Describe the purpose of this policy. Describe the programs and services that are provided through the policy. Connect the policy to the social justice problem you selected by giving a brief description of the problem. Is it a new problem, something that has recently arisen, or an old problem that never got resolved? Describe the historical issues and context that lead to the creation of the social problem and policy development. Include information about the voting outcomes for the policy and the legislative leaders who influenced the policy historically and in the present. Include the impact of these historical features have had on the policy's implementation. Guidelines Use scholarly, peer-reviewed literature to support your claims.
