We will be gathering 32 educators, organizers and influencers in the education justice movement from across the country at an Education Justice Communications Summit on July 17 – July 20 in order to strategize how effective communications and messaging can inform their local and movement building work.
As part of the Summit we will:
• Explore effective frames for messaging in order to combat corporate attacks, preserve and promote public education.
• Discuss and analyze findings from the Education Justice Listening Project.
• Help education justice activists utilize the most effective modalities and messages for their own organization communication strategy.
