As literacy educators, we have powerful tools to transform our classrooms into anti-racist spaces. Each day, we have the privilege and opportunity to change minds and affect hearts through the stories we tell, and to hold space for all voices, especially those who have been too often unheard. But stories aren't always enough. Together, we'll unpack the ways in which we can bring the power of literacy for collective liberation to our teaching practices.
