Teach-in Report: Fostering and Sustaining Allyship at Georgetown – A Dialogue on Understanding Privilege

On April 18th, the Peace Education class at Georgetown University, taught by Professor Anthony Jenkins, facilitated a teach-in on allyship to address institutionalized violence against oppressed identities emboldened by the current political climate. Through this teach-in, participants acquire the necessary peace-building skills and assets to become active allies beyond Georgetown and to their communities. By acknowledging the privilege innate in oneself, individuals learn to utilize their rights to listen to the oppressed in order to support them in their ongoing endeavor of obtaining freedom.

Trump Syllabus K12: Lesson Plans for Teaching During this New Age of Resistance (#TrumpSyllabusK12)

#TrumpSyllabusK12 is a compilation of lesson plans written by and for K-12th grade teachers (and college educators) for teaching about the 2016 presidential campaign; about resistance and revolution; about white privilege and white supremacy; about state-sanctioned violence and sanctuary classrooms; about fake news and Facebook; and, about freedom and justice. It is designed to transform our classrooms into liberated nonsexist nonmisogynistic anti-racist anti-classist spaces without any boundaries or borders. It is meant to liberate and free our students by providing them with lesson plans to challenge them to become global critical thinkers.
