Growing Fairness: A Screening and Discussion
Teachers Unite
Join Teachers Unite, the Chicago Teachers Union, and Chicago-based youth and parent organizations Blocks Together, COFI/POWER PAC, and VOYCE for a screening of Growing Fairness and a conversation about how communities fight to change school culture and end the school-to-prison pipeline. Growing Fairness is a film, workshop series and online toolkit resource created by Teachers Unite for school communities to use as they begin the project of implementing transformative practices in schools.
Open mic
Spit fire on the mic! Join us for an evening of spoken word open mic on Chicago’s West Side. All are welcome to share their talents and lyrics.
