Join us for NYCoRE’s November General Meeting

Friday, November 15th

6 – 8 pm

 Getting to the Root of the Problem: (Re)imagining NYCoRE’s Vision of Social Justice in Education

The tree and rood

Join us for our third monthly meeting of the year as we reflect collectively on some of NYCoRE’s Points of Unity, the principles and philosophies that ground us in our work and bring us together.

At this month’s meeting — the first of a two-part series — we will be delving into our Points of Unity to understand and explore the root causes of the systemic problems we see in our schools, our communities, and our students’ lives. Naming these root causes will help us collectively shape our goals as the NYCoRE community (re)imagines and (re)envisions our future and our place in the educational justice movement.

Be sure to join us for the second part of this discussion at December’s monthly meeting, when we continue the dialogue around more of our Points of Unity!

Location:
NYU Pless Hall 3rd Floor Lounge
82 Washington Square East

Time:

Fri. 6.21.13 – RSVP for NYCoRE’s General Meeting

Last NYCoRE General Meeting until the fall!

Students (as) Stakeholders: Connecting with Youth Organizers

At February’s general meeting, we heard from candidates from the Movement of Rank and File Educators (MORE) on why we need to organize our chapters and take over leadership of the UFT. In March, we heard inspiring words about the power of united communities from Karen Lewis, the president of the Chicago Teachers Union. The political education piece from April’s Member Meeting focused on community organizations. Last month, we heard from parent organizations on how we could support their work and help NYC parent organizations build a fight against the ferocious attacks on public education.

This month’s meeting will conclude our community organizing series with a youth centered discussion on student organizing in school leadership teams, restorative justice communities, student government, and student groups. Join the conversation to hear from students on how educators can best support the work of our youth in New York City.

In addition to our political education piece, there will be more ways to engage in critical discussions around issues affecting education.

Also check out the following breakout groups:

  • New Teacher Group
  • No Human Being is Illegal
  • Youth Led Breakout Group on Student Organizing

If you are interested in leading a break out-group, joining the member committee, or representing your organization, please e-mail Rosie Frascella at rosie@nycore.org.

Location:
