Educators Organizing to Defend and Transform Public Education: A Convening of National Teacher Activist Groups

Teacher Activists from organizations around the nation
Saturday, 9:30 am to 11:00 am -- Rm. A-266

Grassroots teacher organizing is taking place across the country, with many groups becoming a regular part of the discourse for educational justice. The network of Teacher Activist Groups will host a workshop to convene teachers and other activists from across the country. Representatives will present a comparative view of the work being done in various cities. Participants will break out to discuss various types of movement-building and organizing work and seek input from peers in other cities. Individuals and groups will develop ideas for action grounded in their own contexts. All educators and allies welcome!
