2012 Race & Pedagogy Conference

Race, Education, and Criminal Justice Conference

October 6, 2012

The 2012 Race & Pedagogy Conference on Race, Education, and Criminal Justice will engage diverse participants in a rigorous examiniation of the systemic, entrenched, and historically-grounded dynamics connecting racial disparities in education and incarceration.

Action-oriented dialogue will focus on building collaborations, dismantling the brutal pipeline that leads children frm schools to prisons, and transforming systems that produce stigma and disenfranchisement into ones that release human potential and promote lifelong learning, civic revitalization, compassion, and care.

Please join us Saturday, October 6, at the University of Puget Sound. It will be a day of learning and teaching, of connecting and caring, and of questioning and partnering for action.
