Educators and Scholars Unite for the Day of Action Against White Supremacy In Schools, Colleges, and Universities
Join the American Educational Studies Association (AESA) and more than 2,100 college, university, and K-12 educators, scholars, and organizations to demand investment in anti-racist curricula, policies, and practices in your educational institution.
This webinar describes the upcoming Day of Action Against White Supremacy in Schools, Colleges, and Universities, and shares examples of how you can participate at your campuses. The nationwide Day of Action (http://www.educationalstudies.org/day-of-action.php
), scheduled for November 19, responds to increasing calls to censor anti-racist education and builds on the statement, "Education for Democracy Demands Educating Against White Supremacy," which has been endorsed by 2200+ educators, scholars, and organizations.
Already, educators at dozens of campuses have committed to participate. This webinar aims to help us all to prepare. The lead author of the joint statement, Kevin Kumashiro, will describe the Day of Action. Other organizers of the Day of Action will share strategies and ideas about whom to address, which issues to include, how to rally collaborators, and where these actions fit in larger initiatives and movements. This webinar is free and open to the public, but registration is required. We will try to make a recording of the webinar available at the website of the Day of Action soon after. We hope to see you at the webinar and to work alongside you!
