Educate to Liberate (For Educators)


Adult / Special Interests -
Adult Summer 2022

This is a six session virtual course offered to educators willing to examine the everyday policies and practices that produce racial disparities and uphold institutional systems of oppression. Participants will examine their relationships with White Supremacy, discipline practices, tracking, culturally relevant pedagogy, and more. This class is open to all educators looking to reflect on the ways they are complicit in maintaining the status quo.

HOPE Speaks Project

The HOPE Speaks Project began as an idea by two educators and moms who were struggling to engage their own young children in meaningful conversations about race and racism.

Through their own racial journeys and continual growth, co-founders, Kristen Pehl and Meghan Malone recognized the power of silence in maintaining the status quo and how well-intentioned white people sustain racist systems of oppression while believing in their innocence.

Inspired by the quote “Hope will never be silent” by human rights activist Harvey Milk, Kristen and Meghan were determined to begin an essential dialogue on the impact of race and racism using a family centered approach.

The goal was for families to engage with one another in honest, open, personal, and engaged (HOPE) conversations that would build the muscle to sit in discomfort and lead to collective actions that would disrupt the policies and practices that perpetuate systemic racism.
