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:
- Share tools and create networks to make decolonizing education possible.
- Develop participant understanding of anti-racism and equity.
- Position EEC as a megaphone and vehicle.
- Mobilize advocates for future actions.
Workshops from our first Conference in 2019 include・Gatekeeping and Undoing Institutionalized Racism・Psychology of Race and Racism・Building Equity in School District Budgets・Moving From Diversity to Equity・Critical Assessment of Integration Since Brown v. Board・Eliminating the School-to-Prison Pipeline・Recruiting and Retaining Teachers of Color
