Lift Us Up Don’t Push Us Out! Book Release

  • Boston Public Library Copley (map)

Join us to celebrate Lift Us Up, Don't Push Us Out! , which features voices from the frontlines of a new movement for educational justice that is growing across the United States. Each author tells their own story of how black and brown parents, students, educators, and their allies are fighting back against profound and systemic inequities and mistreatment of children of color in low-income communities. The organizers and activists recount their journeys to movement building, lift up victories and successes, and offer practical organizing strategies and community-based alternatives to traditional education reform and privatization schemes. BSAC alumni Carlos and Denyse are featured essayists.
