Who We Are
A Group of Passionate Educators
A group of people (educators, students, parents, retired educators, activists, stakeholders) who are passionate about peace and justice in our lives and classrooms who want to discuss relevant topics, learn from others, and create community.
There is a lack of connection for educators who are implementing peace and justice education in their classrooms in Calgary and Alberta. We want to create opportunities for sharing of resources and experiences to build pedagogy. Impacting change in schools and policy is not an easy task and we all need support to keep going.
Join us for monthly meetings and connect on our Facebook group!
