The 1619 Education Conference (2/19/22 from 1:00-6:30 pm ET and 2/20/22 from 11:30-6:30 pm ET)
The 1619 Education Conference will offer participants the opportunity to learn from The 1619 Project Education Network members about the units they created and implemented as part of the program, the strategies and resources they found most helpful, and their key takeaways from their experience connecting the project to their students. Our Network members represent a variety of school contexts and have valuable insight on effectively implementing 1619 in the classroom.

The conference will include an exploration of project resources for afterschool programs and a Q&A for educators interested in joining the second cohort of the Network. Participants will also hear from contributors to The 1619 Project and professors who have connected the project books to schools of education.

The 1619 Education Conference is open to all, but we especially encourage educators interested in applying to the next 1619 Education Network cohort to attend. The link for all events will be the same, but please use the registration fields to indicate the panels and presentations that you hope to attend!
