Free Minds, Free People is a national conference that brings together teachers, high school and college students, researchers, parents and community-based activists/educators from across the country to build a movement to develop and promote liberatory education. It will take place in Providence, RI from July 7 to 10, 2011. Education for liberation prepares the most excluded, under-served members of our society, in particular low-income youth and youth of color, to fight for a more just world by:
* Teaching students the causes of inequalities and injustices in society and how communities have fought against them.
* Helping them develop both the belief in themselves that they can challenge those injustices and the skills necessary to do that.
* Supporting them in taking action that leads to disenfranchised communities having more power.
