Activist Profiles

The profiles of some of the educational activists who have offered workshops at the annual Educational Activism conference are highlighted here.  Each profile provides an overview of a workshop, its goals, the strategies used, at least one ‘big idea’, key resources, major issues that the activists continue to struggle with, and finally, what supports might enhance their work. This compilation can provide beginning activists with connections and ideas relating to work they are interested in. For experienced activist educators this section may provide inspiration, a deepened sense of solidarity, or networking/ community-building opportunities.
