4th Inclusive VIRTUAL Catholic School Inclusive Conference

Sunday, February 28th 9am PACIFIC Time!

We are having an incredible keynote speaker, Andratesha Fritzgerald who will speak on Universal Design For Learning and Antiracism…and so much more.

We are having breakout sessions after Tesha Fritzgerald’s keynote…so that we can meet in smaller groups and really go deeper…wrestling with the way forward for Catholic schools…and learning from those who are doing the work already…like Dr. Jeannine Hill-Fletcher – a Professor of Theology from Fordham University and author of The Sin of White Supremacy: Christianity, Racism and Religious Diversity in America (Orbis 2017).

Her research includes theological perspectives on inclusion through the lens of race, gender and religious diversity, and she is looking forward to expanding her understanding of inclusion through the pedagogy of universal design.

Dr. Hill Fletcher is on Dr. Tim Uhl’s podcast, Catholic School Matters, talking about white supremacy and Catholicism and sharing her expertise, her insights and her work. You can listen to their riveting conversation here!

Dr. Hill Fletcher’s work is needed in this moment and we are so grateful for her willingness to facilitate a breakout room after Tesha Fritzgerald’s keynote.
