Fixing Systems, Demystifying Ideologies

Kevin Kumashiro, founding director of the Center for Anti-Oppressive Education was the keynote speaker at the 9th annual NW Teaching for Social Justice Conference, held October 29, 2016 at Madison High School in Portland, OR. His talk focused on broadening the focus of social change from smaller problems to larger issues. His talk was in three parts: moving from simple stories to complex pictures, moving from fixing individuals to fixing systems, and moving from debating policies to demystifying ideologies.

The talk was captured by PC Peri, who produced and edited this episode, with editing assistance from Dan Handelman.

Streaming made possible by NW Teaching for Social Justice.
