Teacher Action Group – Philadelphia 7th Annual Education for Liberation Conference
Power from Within: Our Communities, Our Schools

At this year’s conference, we celebrate the vision, strength and resourcefulness of students, educators and community members exercising power and creativity in the face of abandonment and dispossession. We stand firm in the conviction that the people and places in the Philadelphia school system are not disposable, but instead worth cultivating. Rather than disregard and erase our communities’ wisdom and knowledge, we strive to create a space that values this cultural wealth and uses it to ground our work for manifesting just communities and schools. Drawing from the power within leads us towards limitless possibility and real transformation.

The conference will include a panel, workshops, lunch and meetups, an all-day curriculum and resource fair, and gallery of student work. Street parking and easy access to public transportation are available.
