Join us as we explore how we educators recognize our individual stories, engage in educational practices that will help our students realize their own human dignity, their “sacred stories,” help them listen to the stories of others, stories of earth, and compassionately embrace civic engagement for equity and justice, creating new stories?

We gather across campuses, across cultures, across the city.  Am I a victim, a survivor, a hero transforming the challenges into wisdom and compassion? Our city has the dubious distinction of the highest percentage of people living in poverty among the 25 largest U.S. cities and of being one of the
 most economically segregated cities with huge gaps in neighborhoods, education, job opportunities, housing and, medical care availability.
