Teaching is Political: Advocacy and Organizing for Social Change 2022 Summer Collaborative


Program dates: July 11-14, 2022

10am-4pm (in person only)

In July 2022, the Institute for Radical Pedagogy will host its second summer collaboration, Teaching is Political: Advocacy and Organizing for Social Change. Twenty educators from the New Jersey area will be invited to come together for four days to research issues related to the current political landscape as it relates to education (e.g., critical race theory bans, shortage of teachers, trans sports bans, voter suppression), learn organizing strategies to fight injustice, and develop and receive feedback on plans to adopt organizing strategies and take direct action to fight injustice in their local communities.

This in-person event will take place at Rutgers University in Newark.

Registration for the Summer Collaboration is $150.00. Interested educators can register at https://radicalpedagogyinstitute.com/membership-account/membership-levels/ through June 27, 2022.

The Summer Collaborative is designed for PK-12 teachers and teacher trainers in New Jersey. The collaboration will provide these educators with tools and means to address instances of injustice in their school communities. Through their organizing and advocacy efforts, this project will also have an impact on the educational outcomes of PK-12 students and teachers-in-training of these educators.

Snacks will be available, but registered participants should plan to bring their own lunches (or purchase from nearby restaurants).
