Freedom School

What is the Freedom School? As part of SpadeWork, the Freedom School profiles key strategic campaigns that altered the course of history not as an academic exercise, but as an important part of training organizers. SpadeWork places its lineage alongside the rich history of freedom struggles around the world. We are inspired by these examples of courage and deep love of people. The Freedom School underscores an essential organizer practice: study, reflect and learn from movement victories and mistakes. Then apply… rinse, repeat…

We’ve asked friends (and friends of friends) to be presenters because they have personally taken part in these movements. They speak from the heart. But they’ve also reflected on the key lessons that these campaigns can teach us in our collective path to liberation.

We concluded the first series of the Freedom School with ten sessions. Click HERE to check out the recordings.
