Little Uprisings seeks to eliminate the pattern of one day professional development seminars that may share a wealth of knowledge, but then disappear. Led by an experienced racial justice educator, Little Uprisings will not just come to teach, but will serve as a true partner to walk through real change with you. Changing the culture of a school is an undertaking that takes time, commitment, and regular assessment. 


If you are an educator, you may have had professional development and training, but how do you know how to apply what you learn to your curriculum? What does true racial justice look like in your classroom every day, and what changes need to happen to make that vision a reality? What must an administration embrace and uplift in order to create a space where Racial Justice is weaved into the fabric and culture of a school or district? Little Uprisings offers a wrap around approach to teach, support, and walk with you through the journey of making this vision real.
