From Tara Mack

Hello Educators,
The call for proposals for Free Minds, Free People 2011 is here!
Free Minds, Free People, is national conference presented by this network in partnership with The Brotherhood/Sister Sol, the Chicago Freedom School and Youth in Action. It brings together teachers, high school and college students, researchers, parents and community-based activists/educators from across the country to build a movement to develop and promote education as a tool for liberation.

I hope you will consider applying to present at this event. You’ll find the call for proposals here: It is also attached. Proposals are due January 21, 2011.

Our 2009 national conference in Houston, TX featured more than 60 activities, including workshops, panels and local community site visits, 40 presenting organizations and 450 attendees.

Our 2011 conference will be held in Providence, Rhode Island July 7-10, 2011. Free Minds, Free People is an energizing and inspiring gathering because it brings together groups that do not usually have an opportunity to interact and build solutions together: educators, activists and students.
I hope to see lots of you in Providence. Please forward this announcement to anyone you think might be interested in being part of Free Minds, Free People.
