I truly believe that without the Social Justice Summer Camp D428 would not have made as much progress as we did in 2017-2018.

"The Social Justice Summer Camp provided participants an opportunity to understand theory pertaining to social justice, oppression and systems of oppression while also giving us examples of ways to address systemic racism and oppression. Learning from marginalized groups gave meaning to our work and helped us develop a plan to address needs in our district. ."by Beatriz Maldonado, Director of Language Acquisition, Berwyn South School District 100
