Free Minds Free People Salt Lake City 2013

I am excited to announce that the next Free Minds, Free People conference will take place in Salt Lake City, June 27-30, 2013. Please save the date!

As you may know, Free Minds, Free People is a national gathering, presented by the Education for Liberation Network, that brings together teachers, high school and college students, researchers, parents and community based activists/educators from across the country to build a movement to develop and promote education as a tool for liberation. The goal of the conference is to provide a forum for sharing knowledge, experiences and strategies to help disenfranchised communities understand and challenge the injustices they face. It takes place every other year. Our most recent event, Free Minds, Free People 2011 in Providence, RI, drew more than 700 people. For more information, please visit

For those who were at the Houston conference in 2009, you may remember the amazing group of more than three dozen people from Salt Lake City, largely high school and college-age youth of color, who presented and participated in that conference. They are coming together to host the 2013 conference. 

Here is a message from the Salt Lake City team: ( this is us!!) 

We are excited to host the Free Minds, Free People conference in Salt Lake City not only because we feel it will bring a great surge of enthusiasm to our activist community, but also because we will have the opportunity to show those outside of Utah why we choose to invest and build in this state. We know that the work we are all doing has great meaning and are very excited to see up-close what the rest of the FMFP family is working on throughout the country.

I hope to see you in Salt Lake City in 2013!
