Sunday 9:30 am - 12:15 pm -- McGUIRE HALL

The Ethnic Studies Movement is an assembly that was submitted on behalf of the Education for Liberation Network, which is a national coalition of teachers, community activists, researchers, youth and parents who believe a good education should teach people how to understand and challenge the injustices their communities face. Participants in the assembly will have an opportunity to analyze and synthesize the political moment, through a collaborative and democratic process, in order to develop and strengthen the implementation of Ethnic Studies nationwide. Participants in this assembly will be able to identify personal and regional needs and goals around areas such as organizing, curriculum, pedagogy, and policy; exchange knowledge, tools, resources, and experiences; and build and strengthen national strategies and networks.
