A Queer Endeavor’s annual Educator Institute for Equity and Justice in Education (EIEJ) is a 2-day professional learning experience aimed to support K-12 educators and youth-serving adults to learn and enact equity and justice-focused practices. Sessions will focus on anti-racism, abolitionist teaching, gender and sexual diversity, bi/multilingualism, equity in rural communities, supporting first-generation and undocumented students, critical dis/ability studies, trauma, and healing-- among others and their intersections.
