A Chat with Dr. Bill Ayers

Wednesday, Nov 11th
4PM- 5PM, Zoom

Join us for a conversation with educator, activist & author Dr. Bill Ayers. In this hour we will learn more about how we can reimagine education in a post-COVID era. This year has taught us many lessons about ourselves, our communities and our education system. We will have the opportunity to not only hear about his personal journey as an activist but how we can all be disruptors and change-makers this coming year.
