This year's theme is, "Beyond Resistance, Beyond Rebellion: Creating Other Worlds", inspired by all the powerful work critical educators across LA are doing to re-imagine and humanize spaces both in and outside the classroom.
The keynote will be led by Stephanie Cariaga, a UCLA graduate student, sistarmaestra, teacher educator, and mother. Drawing from a range of frameworks - women of color feminist, trauma and healing-informed, and critical race theory - she'll be discussing the intersections of her work as a teacher and mother in developing healing-centered pedagogies.
