Speaker:  Dr. Shawn Ginwright

Ginwright’s bold and nuanced keynote proposes a new movement of healing justice to repair the damage done by the erosion of hope resulting from structural violence in urban communities. Drawing on ethnographic case studies from around the country, he emphasizes the need to place healing and hope at the center of our educational and political strategies. In his talk he shares how "teacher activists" in community organizations and stressed schools are employing healing strategies to help their students become powerful civic actors.
