From Connections to Power to Liberation: Imperatives for Education Justice

Grantmakers for Education


June 17, 2:00 pm ET

In 2023, Communities for Just Schools Fund– a national funder and organizer collaborative– launched a listening journey with their 78+ partner network composed of local, state and national organizations of youth, parents, caregivers and educators advancing education justice in public schools. Their goal was to listen to frontline organizations about what they need to ensure that public education realizes its mandate to meet Black, Brown and Indigenous youth at their brilliance. Their guiding question was: “What kind of power, connections and collaboration do you need to build the power necessary to transform public education, and how can philanthropy support you?”

What resulted from their journey was a foundational report: From Connections, to Power, to Liberation, which spotlights the strategic investment and capacity strengthening imperatives of the education justice movement. Featuring the voices of movement partners, this webinar will highlight promising victories, as well as opportunities for philanthropy to meet the education justice frontline where it aspires to build power to catalyze people, governance, narrative and sustainability.

While others are welcome to attend, this event is intended for members and education grantmakers.

Program runs for 90 minutes. There is no cost to attend this Grantmakers for Education program. Registration closes 15 minutes prior to the program time.
