Movement Building, Power, Black Futures, Public Education, and Collective Liberation: A Conversation with Alicia Garza

Event Graphic

Join Nellie Mae for the next event in our #EdEquityTalks series! We are excited to host Alicia Garza, principal at Black Futures Lab and co-founder of the Black Lives Matter Global Network. Public education, political education, and justice-centered work are often seen as separate entities even though they share many fundamental elements. This conversation will focus on understanding how power and movement-building principles and strategies can help us make meaning of the landscape of education, and how racial equity and justice in education are elements of a larger movement we all need to be a part of.

The Nellie Mae Education Foundation champions efforts that challenge racial inequities and advance excellent, student-centered public education for all New England youth.
