Educators have a critical role to play in creating classroom communities that not only challenge racism, but also build a learning environment that is explicitly anti-racist. To support K-12 educators, this one-day hybrid conference will build knowledge of anti-racist and decolonial theory in the education sector. Conference participants will learn ways to practically apply data, evidence, and community insights to create anti-racist classroom spaces.
This conference will:
- Bridge the gap between educators, academia, and community organizers by presenting the newest most relevant anti-racist theories and practices
- Outline the current systemic barriers Black, Indigenous, and racialized students face within the classroom space
- Educate attendees on how to reduce barriers and establish inclusive teaching practices in their classroom
- Create a space for attendees to engage in cross-cultural dialogue to foster solidarity across diverse communities
