This workshop invites Educators of Color and future Educators of Color (EOC) and those who want to be present as allies to come together and build community and awareness. Similar to the Consciousness Raising Circles used widely during 2nd Wave Feminism, we hope to connect the individual struggles we experience to shared roots in oppressive systems. We will provide the opportunity to share our stories of what it means to be an EOC specifically in the context of liberal, well-meaning education spaces. Through learning about the resiliency of our community, participants will walk away with the skills and stories to create spaces for us to step into leadership in a way that is grounded in who we are, not what is expected of us.
