The annual Launch is an opportunity for leaders and aspiring leaders in education to learn about TAF’s Liberation Pedagogy framework through our two leadership professional development programs, Education EnCounter and Ally Engagement. Attendees participate in a guided workshop exploring the application of Liberation Pedagogy in their schools – and are provided with a framework to help create and sustain more inclusive and equitable schools.

Every year, the TAF’s Network for EdWork brings together leaders and educators from across the country to share tools, practices, and policies that undo and replace oppressive behaviors, beliefs, and policies that harm BIPOC students and educators.
The Convening is an opportunity to commune with each other and engage in decolonizing pedagogies meant to liberate education and create more equitable learning environments for everyone.

As part of our Anti-Racist Leadership Series, these half-day workshops provide a framework for white leaders who are ready to challenge and redefine the education system and themselves, to cultivate spaces where BIPOC leaders, educators, and students of color thrive.
These multi-part engagements serve as a space for white leaders to examine the impact of racism and oppression on self, others, and the education system – ultimately supporting them to engage in more inclusive and liberatory leadership practices.
Sample Engagement Topics:
- Supremacy/oppressor mindset
- Culturally responsive education
- Microaggressions in school culture
- Dominant narratives in prescribed school curricula
Ally Engagement offers affinity salons specifically for leaders who identify as white. These spaces are an opportunity for leaders who have or are currently attending our Anti-Racist Leadership Series to engage in community to share, reflect, and strategize. Affinity Salons provide white education leaders an opportunity to explore their own identities and acquire the skills and confidence to engage in this vital work with and alongside BIPOC colleagues and communities more effectively.
To help maintain community and support in between formal program events, we utilize an online learning platform that allows participants to access materials from previous workshops, resources for networking with other ally partners, clock hour information, as well as information about upcoming events.
