The DC Special Education Cooperative is proud to present the Good Trouble Social Justice Institute. The Good Trouble Social Justice Institute is a two-day engaging, innovative, and collective knowledge-building program. This immersive experience is designed to serve and support young people of color and their advocacy at the intersections of disability, race, and gender. All programming will occur on Saturday, May 8th, and Saturday, May 22nd, from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. The Institute is aligned thematically to the idea of Unlearning and Healing. The approach allows for everyone to check their biases and understanding of these intersections of race, gender, and disability to begin the healing needed to move forward in solidarity. The Institute will include yoga instructors, workshop facilitators, speakers, including a keynote speech from environmental justice organizer Daphne Frias.

  • Ages 14-19 years old OR Grades 8th -12th
