WE ARE HERE!- Professional learning event for teachers

ECU’s School of Education is proud to host a free professional learning seminar to introduce teachers and educators to a social justice project designed to inspire young people with the confidence and ability to be “upstanders” rather than “bystanders”; to stand up in the face of prejudice and oppression in their communities. The WE ARE HERE! project is sponsored by funding provided by the United States Government. Using the stories of the Partisans in the forests during World War 2, WE ARE HERE! empowers young people to take steps to confront and combat acts of discriminatory prejudice and injustice with their voices and their actions. WE ARE HERE! aims to enable the individual to make a real difference towards the goals of social justice. For more information about WE ARE HERE! please visit the WAH Foundation website.
