Welcome!

The NDSG Virtual Annual Meeting 2022 will be held via Zoom, with multiple sessions from Friday evening, February 18 through Saturday, February 19, with an optional social gathering the evening of Thursday, February 17.

Critical Race Theory debates, COVID-19 cases, intensified racism and inequities in our schools; public education really is under fire. What can we do individually and collectively to achieve social justice in our schools and our society?

At NDSG, we come together to support one another and also to plan and organize how to navigate these challenges. We need healing and solidarity, and we also need action--what can we do to preserve our schools as public, democratic institutions and support our students, their families, and all our teachers and staff. Our meeting will provide opportunities to hear from those who are working to make a difference, to brainstorm next steps, and, perhaps most importantly, to create a (virtual) community where we can see and hear one another as we work together. NDSG 2022 will focus on making healing connections, nurturing clarity, and organizing at small and larger levels. Teachers, High School and University students, Parents, Community Activists, and Administrators are invited to join in small group dialogues, exploring the connections between our personal and collective struggles and building vision and sturdy structures for united action.

This year's Gathering is fully virtual and takes place via the Zoom online meeting system. Registrants will receive additional details, including session times and join codes following registration. All session schedules will include breaks to prevent screen fatigue.
