The Equity in Education Coalition presents our Decolonizing Education Conference a multi-day gathering – to advance the education community’s understanding of and practices around anti-racism and equity. 

Bringing together educators, parents, students, school board members, legislators, education advocates, and community-based organizations, this conference will thoroughly examine the intersection of racism in education and intentionally center the voices, experiences, and expertise of people of color – Native/Indigenous, Black, and Immigrant/Refugee.

Through this conference we will:

1) share tools and create networks to make decolonizing education possible.

2) develop participant understanding of anti-racism and equity.

3) position EEC as a megaphone and vehicle.

4) mobilize advocates for future actions.

With this conference, EEC aims to animate organizing, advocacy, and policymaking strategies, in Washington and nationwide, that work to undo institutional racism in educational systems.
