Social Justice Education

The Transforming Education for Social Justice Conference is a regional conference that brings together educators, students, community organizers, higher education professionals, and attendees across all of New England who are committed to transforming society with young people. 

Participants at this regional conference will examine the specific challenges that young people are facing in our schools which are central to their lives and vitality of our communities. As we examine these challenges, we will also look to each other for community assets, visions, and practices that can guide our work towards transforming education for social justice.


Conference sessions will cover a variety of social justice and equity topics as they relate to K-12 schools. Join us for: 

  • Workshops focused on regional topics and initiatives related to social justice and equity in education;
  • Opportunities for powerful networking and connections with local educators and administrators as you share curriculum, lunch and facilitated conversation;  
  • Time to laugh and play with old and new friends;
  • Youth-led sessions that provide opportunities to learn from young people and support the development of student leadership.
