Racial Justice in the Jewish ECE Classroom

Facilitators: Aliza Plotkin, Dr. Ilana Dvorin Friedman
Format: Virtual

About this Network:

This interactive network is provided in partnership with the Paradigm Project. Through a shared commitment to creating spaces where adults and young children can speak and act against injustice and racism, this Community of Practice will support participants as they engage in anti-racism work, listening, and learning to transform their early childhood practice, classrooms, schools, and communities. As this community aspires to model anti-racist actions we forefront this description with an acknowledgment that the organizers are all Euro-Americans. However, the majority of sessions will feature Black scholars and practitioners providing access to insights and life experiences that will prepare all participants to move forward with this important work.
