FOR FATHERS’ DAY: SUMMER JUSTICE 2020 – Not the Typical Kind of Gift
Across our country, people are coming together to dismantle systemic racism in healthcare, schools, communities, and policing. We know a better future is possible.
Join us for the NEA Center for Social Justice Summer Justice Series: Building a Community of Love, Power & Liberation, where we will organize together, support each other, and create meaningful change.
Participants in the Summer Justice Series, taking place through virtual sessions, will explore innovative strategies for sparking change and creating a collective vision for education justice, while taking time to experience healing and joy.
Virtual Camp Session I: Welcome and Kick-Off

About the Summer Justice Series:
The Summer Justice Series will take participants to wide open spaces where a collective vision for education justice can emerge. Just like heading outside where we can see the world in new ways, these sessions will use art and music, storytelling, creative organizing strategies, and interactive discussions of key racial and social justice issues to guide us toward the change we seek.
The impacts of the pandemic and violence against Indigenous, Black, brown and LGBTQ communities has us all thinking a lot about what it means to be a community, how much harder we need to work to end systemic injustices, and the value of our public spaces and services to ensure our health, safety and ability to thrive. These unusual times provide an opportunity to explore innovative strategies to spark change while also taking time to experience healing and joy.
Organized into three virtual sessions, involving over 30 dynamic workshops and events, we will be coming together to recharge, deepen our connections, and organize for the public schools and communities we all deserve.
