Decolonizing Education Conference

  • Hotel Murano 1320 Broadway Tacoma, WA, 98402 United States (map)

About the Conference

The Equity in Education Coalition presents the first of an annual, multi-day gathering that centers anti-racism in education policy, where we build advocacy, organizing, and policy-making strategies that work to undo institutional racism in the educational system.

Bringing together educators, school board members, legislators, education advocates, community-based organizations, parents, and students, this conference will examine the intersection of race and education.

Through this conference we will: 1) share tools and create networks to make decolonizing education possible; 2) develop participant understanding of equity in education; 3) position EEC as a megaphone and vehicle; and 4) mobilize advocates for future actions.
