People’s State of the Union
The president will give this year’s State of the Union Address on January 30, but you might feel that your stories are not represented in that address.
This event is a chance to gather with others in the D.C. community to talk about what you experienced and witnessed in the past year, and what you think it means about the state of our nation. The focus will be specifically on the state of education, and this event is in community with DC Area Educators for Social Justice (a project of Teaching for Change) and Classroom Culture. The format is a story circle in which we will listen to each other and talk about our individual experiences and thoughts on our education systems in our community this year. People’s State of the Union story circles are taking place across the country as a project by the U.S. Department of Arts and Culture, which is a people-powered non-government organization.
Come ready to share:
- An experience that gave you insight into the state of education in our union
- An experience that gave you hope in the past year about education
This is not a KCDC event. It is produced by another organization. We include it because we think that it will be of interest to our students.
