Ms. Wicht will join us again on March 9, 2021 to help participants take their understanding of the Learning for Justice framework one step further by putting the Learning for Justice Social Justice Standards (Identity, Diversity, Justice, and Action) into action at home. Ms. Wicht will discuss:
  • How do we talk about social justice issues with young people in a way that is age and developmentally appropriate?
  • How do we understand our own motivations to move toward allyship?
  • How can individuals use their privilege(s) as a tool to achieving liberation for all?
  • How can school communities build coalitions for collective action and impact social change at the local, state and national level?
