The National Coalition on School Diversity is excited to announce our 2017 national conference, “A Struggle We Must Win: Advancing School Integration through Activism, Youth Voice, and Policy Reform.”

We have recently opened submissions for workshop proposals. Some of the topics/issues we hope to include in the workshops are:

  • State/local-led integration efforts (including those in organizing stage)
  • Centering student voice
  • Power shifting
  • Empowering another generation of integration activists, scholars, advocates, and policymakers
  • Framing, messaging, narrative
  • Research and evaluation
  • Practical tools for activists (e.g. conducting a power analysis, facilitation skillbuilding, being on the front line, self care)
  • Making integration work in schools (pedagogy, curriculum, school climate, discipline)
  • Anti-racist practices and/or decentering whiteness w/in the integration movement
  • Litigation, legal theory, and advocacy strategies
  • Democracy
  • Connecting integration to other social justice or education issues/movements
