"Our purpose is to educate ourselves and our members about the many issues around inequalities and inequities in our world today. Once we begin the journey of learning, we can begin to find solutions to these inequities, both in ourselves and our own lives, and in the lives of those around us." 

- Amanda Scott, committee member

Join us for a virtual event with Dr. Bettina Love!

Thursday, August 20, 2020 at 4pm

Dr. Love’s talk will discuss the struggles and the possibilities of committing ourselves to an abolitionist goal of educational freedom, as opposed to reform, and moving beyond what she calls the educational survival complex. Abolitionist Teaching is built on the creativity, imagination, boldness, ingenuity, and rebellious spirit and methods of abolitionists to demand and fight for an educational system where all students are thriving, not simply surviving.
