Advanced Freedom School

We will conduct a 3 day Advanced Freedom School yearly for Post-Freedom School participants. The Advanced Freedom School will explore topics at a deeper level. At the Advanced Freedom School 2010, we will look at the current economic recession and its impact especially on communities of color, environmental racism in Seattle, the history of the race construct in the Pacific Northwest as it relates to Native and African American communities, the prison industrial complex and the effects of trauma on community organizers and tools for healing and much more.
