Introducing WHEN WE FIGHT, WE WIN! The Podcast, “Black and Brown Solidarity: The Struggle to Defend Public Education in Puerto Rico and the USA.”
How can we stand in solidarity together to ensure the educational future of our next generation? Listen to the voices of AgitArte, the Federation of Teachers of Puerto Rico, Journey for Justice Alliance, and the Alliance for Quality Education as they worked together to hold The Transnational Encounter to Defend Public Education forum. This forum was held to explore how solidarity between two nations is imperative in working towards creating a strong public education system.
From Oakland to Louisiana, all the way to Puerto Rico, these cities and places are working to ensure that our children are getting the education they deserve. Hurricane Maria, Hurricane Katrina, fighting political tyrants such as Julia Kehler, are just some of the barriers our communities are working to overcome. This episode shares the experience of educators working on the frontlines of education reform and the initiatives that they’re spearheading to make these changes become a reality.
We are excited to offer this episode to you and want to thank everyone involved in this unique episode.
Episode 4 is now available across all podcast streaming platforms.
