Free Minds, Free People is a national conference convened by the Education for Liberation Network that 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. Read more about our mission and goals.
We are extremely excited to announce that the next Free Minds, Free People will take place in Oakland, CA, July 9 – 12, 2015!
Our last conference in Chicago was a huge success! About 1,000 people from across the country came together and enjoyed nearly 100 workshops, panels and assemblies. For those who were at the Chicago conference last year, you may remember the awesome turnout of folks from California and the Bay Area who presented and participated in that conference. They are taking that energy and commitment to FMFP and putting it on full blast to host our next conference.
Our call for proposals is now live! Please click proposals to learn more about submitting a proposal for a workshop, panel, research paper, young activist workshop, or assembly! Proposals are due January 30, 2015.
We’ll plan to see you July 9 – 12, 2015 in Oakland, CA – mark your calendar, start organizing to participate, and spread the word!
