Beyond performative allyship into radical Abolitionist solidarity
This interactive workshop builds on the foundation of the Level 1 Summer Institute and engages educators to more deeply explore hands-on restorative strategies to build democratic classrooms for all learners. By decentering whiteness and addressing white supremacy culture and by shifting from a “power-over” to a “power-with” framework, educators learn to co-create a learning community with their students where all can find a place of belonging. Educators learn to operationalize culturally responsive teaching resulting in students taking ownership of their learning in unprecedented ways: ELL students acquire language and content with greater facility; all students build 21st Century skills–collaboration, communication, creativity, and critical thinking. Workshop participants learn a strength-based pedagogy that recognizes agency in all kinds of students, creating a space for them to become engaged leaders in the classroom and beyond.
