Community-driven Activism & Leadership in a Neoliberal Era: Research on and with Detroit Educational Organizers

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Papers in this symposium draw upon emerging findings from the first year of an in-depth, multiple case study that incorporates ethnographic and participatory action research methods to examine how a community-based, urban educational organization engages over 200 adult and youth organizers in activism to promote equity-oriented reform in Detroit’s highly contested, market-oriented educational arena. Data guides our understanding of organizers’ reform efforts in formal, informal, and even virtual spaces to challenge oppressive neoliberal educational contexts.
