As schools across the country enter the 2018-19 academic year, the Communities for Just Schools Fund and the Southern Education Foundation hope to help channel educators' #RedforEd and #MarchForOurLives energy towards active solidarity with Black, brown, and LGBTQ youth and communities long on the front lines demanding (and modeling) liberatory, relationship-centered, police- and ice-free schools.
This webinar (and follow-up toolkit) will:
1) introduce youth- and teacher-led organizations advancing restorative practices, social-emotional learning, and culturally competent curriculum and pedagogy to improve school climate;
2) offer educators concrete tools to take into the classroom to advance racial justice and model the nurturing, affirmative world we all deserve to live in; and,
3) invite educators and education justice allies to follow the developments of CJSF's Education Anew institute for more resources and training opportunities to advance #justschools.
Featured presenters to include educators and organizers from Californians for Justice, Teaching for Change, and Teachers Unite!
