Learning for Justice Magazine

Issue 1, Fall 2021

Cover of ‘Learning for Justice’ Magazine.

Curb cuts marked a pivotal moment in disability activism decades ago, but the ramifications were broader. The same principle is true in education: Centering those most underserved can have widespread benefits, and we certainly see this playing out during the COVID-19 era. That’s what this first-ever issue of Learning for Justice magazine explores.

From stories on the foundational nature of language access and prioritizing students’ humanity to community-based approaches to school safety and redefining virtual learning, this premiere issue examines lessons learned from educating during the pandemic—and during our program’s 30-year history.
