All Our Children Conference Spotlights Education Equity


Last month, from January 16-18, over a hundred educators and faith-rooted advocates gathered in Columbia, SC for a conference that focused on spotlighting education equity and providing resources for advocates and volunteers to help the movement grow. The event was hosted by All Our Children, a network of congregations engaged in partnerships with under-resourced urban public schools.

The Expectations Project (TEP) partnered with All Our Children on the conference by leading two workshops for conference attendees; our topics included Advocacy 101 and Building Schools that Allow for Healing Relationships. In addition, The Expectations Project was involved in leading small debrief sessions and attended daily All Our Children leadership meetings.

Attendees experienced three days of speakers, workshops, and presentations that highlighted ways churches already are making a difference and provided advice on how to effectively advocate for changes in government policy that will move society closer to education equity.

This conference was a powerful example of how efforts to grow a national movement of faith-rooted advocates to shine a light on educational inequality are gaining momentum.
