Event Description

Program dates: July 11-14, 2022

10 a.m.-4 p.m. (in-person only)

In July 2022, the Radical Pedagogy Institute will host its second Summer Collaborative, Teaching is Political: Advocating and Organizing for Social Change. Twenty New Jersey area educators will be invited to gather for four days to research issues related to the current political landscape as it pertains to education (e.g., critical race theory bans, teacher shortage, trans sport bans, voter suppression), learn organizing strategies to fight injustice, and develop and receive feedback on plans to enact organizing strategies and take direct action to fight injustice in their local communities.

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

Registration for the Summer Collaborative 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 educators in New Jersey. The collaborative will provide these educators with tools and means to fight instances of injustice in their school communities. Through their organizing and advocacy efforts, this project will also impact the education outcomes of these educators’ PK-12 students and preservice teachers.

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