About this event
Join us for a one-day virtual conversation with MAS educators, organizers, and scholars focused on celebrating and sharing the powerful and inspiring MAS work happening across the state, as well as brainstorming and strategizing ways to continue to build the movement for MAS in Texas schools. There will be sessions related to politics and policy, as well as pedagogy, curriculum, and practice in elementary, secondary, and higher education spaces.
