Beacon’s 12th Annual Symposium on Race and Class in Education on Friday, October 20th, 2017
For over a decade, Beacon Academy has annually bought together a select group of our alumni who honestly and courageously discuss their experiences with hopes of making it better for more kids like them. This year, Beacon is adding in the voices of leadership as well as solution-oriented workshops. Audience members are encouraged to share their perspectives in a town-hall style forum and continue the conversation over lunch. Workshops provide an opportunity to turn theory into practice in areas such as socio-emotional support, admissions, policy creation, and family advocacy.
