RSVP for NYCoRE’s November Meeting

In the political education component of November’s member meeting, we will be using Freirean Culture Circles as a way to understand current events in racial justice and education, from the assault of Shakara at Spring Valley High to the student organizing at Mizzou. We’ll be analyzing how these events connect to their root causes as well as move toward action.
