Teachers 4 Social Justice believes in evolving a society based on equity and love, where each person has access to resources regardless of race, gender, ability, age, socio-economic status, sexual orientation, or faith, for intellectual, spiritual, artistic, and emotional growth. This visionary society’s political, economic, and cultural systems and structures uphold the people’s right to participate in the decisions that affect them and ensures interactions that are based on respect and cooperation towards a sustainable future.
T4SJ is united in the belief that children are the foundation of our future and that teachers, parents, and communities are crucial to a child’s growth and development. Toward this end, we need to foster relationships that preclude violence and incarceration.
T4SJ shall actualize schools as an extension of the community, reflecting the different histories, issues, and forms of resistance of our diverse peoples. These schools support the efforts of people to develop a critical understanding of their power and role in affecting meaningful change at the local, national, and global levels.
