RUTGERS AAUP-AFT FREEDOM SCHOOL
Rutgers AAUP-AFT is organizing Freedom School in the tradition of Ella Baker, the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee and the 1960s civil rights movement. The pandemic has disrupted both our ordinary lives and how we connect to each other. We want Freedom School to be a virtual classroom and discussion space for union members, students, and the broader communities that Rutgers serves, with the goal of developing leadership and political consciousness for a new generation. Our sessions will feature speakers from within our Coalition of Rutgers Unions as well as the wider labor and social movements, discussing the themes that inform our current struggles for economic, racial, and social justice.
