From Punk Love to Compa (Comrade) Love: How to Build Lifelong Companer@s in Urban Schools

Saturday, 9:30 am to 11:00 am -- Rm. F-204

This workshop will move participants through a reflective process to create critically engaging and liberatory, community responsive relationships with students. This workshop begins by exploring loveless interactions educators often have with children and youth (Cobarde/Cowardly Love) and, instead, consider Compa/Comrade love as a way to critically examine the types of love/lovelessness participants are engaging in, and to move towards practicing what more critical forms of love should look like in the context of an urban classroom.
