FLDC Phase 2 Convening Synthesis

On February 7-9, 2019, we held our third convening where we invited a group of people that are deeply invested in learning and humanizing our way towards community-defined educational justice and wellbeing. Across these multiple contexts, participants shared their efforts to disrupt inequitable dynamics in schools and catalyze educational possibilities that build on families’ histories, epistemologies and lived experiences. FLDC members also discussed cross-site findings from the Phase 2 of our multi-year project, including key principles for enacting family-centered design work, the multiple theories of change taken up by sites in their co-design with families and communities, and strategies for cultivating cross-geography solidarities in the work.
