Teachers 4 Social Justice
Friday, 11:30 am to 1:00 pm -- Rm G-246

This panel is about the Teachers 4 Social Justice (T4SJ), a Bay Area grassroots organization that is part of a larger national coalition of Teacher Activist Groups (TAG) across the country. T4SJ offers educators alternative forms of professional development to engage in critical reflection, action, and receive on-going support that sits outside of formal institutions. The panelists all voluntarily facilitate study groups and contribute to the planning, organizing and foundational work of the grassroots organization.
