Social Justice Working Group Strategizes Next Steps

 

On Sunday afternoon, the Social Justice Education Working Group gathered at Matt's apartment for some food, wine, and strategy!

 

By coming together to share and discuss helpful resources on everything from improving literacy to fighting racism, the group took major steps towards developing a curriculum and growing a team with the power to actualize their social justice values!

Situate and teach community and civic engagement within the unique contexts that inform the lived experiences of our students, with the ultimate goal of providing tools for empowerment and active citizenship. As part of an extended community of students, educators, and families, we seek to give students opportunities to learn about real world and historical issues, and how they can explore these issues to strengthen their ability to be critical thinkers, readers, writers, and speakers.
