OPEN TO ALL!

The deep racial divides and tragedies facing communities across the country today echo the struggles for equity and social justice of the Civil Rights era. We invite you to join IEL’s Education Policy Fellowship Program, in partnership with The Freedom '64 Project, on the Civil Rights Bus Tour and take a journey through history, to both reflect and engage in a meaningful dialogue about how to make a positive social change in our communities and organizations.

   

 

“I made this trip at a time of rising anxiety among minorities and many whites about the increase in hate-related behavior following our recent presidential election. The question hanging over us: will we allow the past to repeat itself?"

-John Merrow, Learning Matters

“We realized on the last day of our bus tour that we as a group had unified around this common powerful experience, and pledged to support one another in our own work to advance civil and human rights."

-Mary Kingston Roche, IEL (EPFP '10-11)
