Youth and The Resistance Panel
May 18, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm PDTexternal
How do you talk to your students, children, and youth, about the impacts the current administration’s policies have on their lives and experiences? Come to our free panel and discover what administrators, educators, and parents are doing to inform youth and help them build tools to speak out and contribute in their own way. Panelists will discuss what parents are observing, what schools can do to broach these thorny topics with young people, and how we might work with students to aid in the resistance.
This panel is part ofa spring quarter course entitled “Educating for the Resistance,” developed by the School of Education at Antioch University Seattle. The course explores the many ways people can contribute to the resistance and stay vigilant to ever-changing policies that effect our lives, climate, and economy.
