Connecting the Dots: Building Solidarity to Transform our City and Schools
What does it mean for students, families, and educators to be in solidarity with each other?
It is critical that we see how issues of education justice connect directly to broader movements for racial, economic and gender justice. When we connect the dots, we recognize our responsibility to deepen our analysis, strengthen our commitment to solidarity, and push ourselves toward further action.
At this conference, we invite participants to see the connections between struggles inside and outside of schools so that we challenge the social systems of violence that make it hard for any of us to show up whole.
Contributions are encouraged. The cost of putting on the conference is approximately $10/person. Pay what you can! No one is turned away for lack of funds.
