On May Day 2017, educators are birthing a 1-day People’s School for Boston area youth. We believe in education for liberation. We believe in the intersection and interaction of labor, class, immigrant, indigenous, black, racial, women’s, trans & queer, and environmental justice struggles. We believe our young people are our peers in forging our society. Their empowerment, and our collective creating is the medicine we need.

People’s School will run parallel to the school day for youth participating in May Day school boycotts. We will be offering holistic healing, restorative justice circles, mindfulness practices, movement, song, art for activism, storytelling, dialogues with community leaders, and workshops such as Know Your Rights, A History of Strikes/Boycotts, and Youth Activism. During the day, youth will be empowered to participate in May Day dialogues, actions, and teach each other.
