Details

There will be two identical workshops that focus on the importance of educating children about poverty, homelessness, racism, ableism, and displacement by centering the voices of those who are most impacted by those intersecting oppressions. Using their recently-published, revolutionary children’s books (The Hard Worker, Trabajador Fuerte and Black Disabled Art History 101) as models and teaching tools, Tiny Gray-Garcia and Leroy Moore will work with participants to develop teaching strategies and curriculum around these critical themes that can be used with a wide range of ages and education levels. Through videos youth and teachers will also present the model of a liberation school rooted in indigenous consciousness and poverty scholarship for homeless and formerly homeless children, run by homeless and formerly homeless mamas, uncles, grandmothers and grandfathers that we call Decolonize Academy. 

(CART service at 4:30pm - 6:30pm session.)
