Immigration Enforcement, Law Enforcement, and Educational Justice

MigrationIsBeautifulPosters_18x24_hi_res_

 

Join us Friday, May 20th for our monthly member meeting. This month’s Political Education will be facilitated by members of NYCoRE’s Teach Dream Working Group.

In April, we discussed the intersections of the prison abolition movement and educational justice. In this month’s meeting, Teach Dream (a working group of NYCoRE) will continue this conversation by exploring the connections between immigration enforcement and law enforcement. The United States has a long history of using policing and borders to perpetuate racism and capitalism. We will read, discuss, and draw ways that we as educators in particular can resist and support resistance in order to imagine and bring forth a world without borders and without police.

Check out these two actions to support undocumented and immigrant youth and families:

To learn more about these actions, join us on May 20th!

Note: Credit for much of the political analysis in this workshop goes to the Black Lives Matter movement, the ICEfreeNYC coalition, Families for Freedom and the New York State Youth Leadership Council.

RSVP for the First NYCoRE Meeting of the School Year

It’s time for NYCoRE’s first meeting of the 2015-2016 School Year!

In the meeting we will be engaging with NYCoRE’s Points of Unity as well as our political lens.

We’ll be exploring these questions:
  • How does structural racism, Whiteness and White supremacy manifest in the public school system?
  • What does neoliberalism have to do with education reform?
  • How can we as educators resist the forces that attack public education system and how can we FIGHT THE POWER?

We’ll also have some time for Working Groups to check in and meet new members.

Please join us as we strengthen our collective political analysis and prepare for the work of this year!
