Hyatt Regency Chicago Comiskey, Concourse Level West Tower

The Black Youth Project's activist arm, BYP100, is a member-based organization of Black 18–35 year olds, dedicated to creating justice and freedom for all Black people. BYP100 is a collective focused on transformative leadership development, direct action organizing, advocacy and education using a Black queer feminist lens.

This session focuses on BYP100's attention to both self-healing and communal healing as instrumental to the sustainability of organizing work. BYP100 includes a Healing and Safety council that address interpersonal conflict but also provides education and training on how to carry out the self-work given all the oppression faced by black people. This round-table session will bring some of those factors, practices, and strategies forward for our collective consideration.

354. Program Committee Teach-in: Educators Unite!

Hyatt Regency Chicago Regency B, Ballroom Level West Tower

This session is designed as a teach-in that brings together educators involved in union organizing at all levels, including K-12 teachers, graduate students, adjunct faculty, and tenure-track faculty. Participants are drawn from the local contexts of the city of Chicago and the state of Illinois, not only because of the conference location, but also because of the increased pressures faced by public unions in Illinois, especially in the wake of the state's refusal to pass a budget in fiscal year 2016. What is happening in Illinois reflects how education is currently being remade within the broader political economy, so these educators' efforts to organize and to resist this remaking offer an important "guide to action" that we can all learn from.

The session will be divided into three parts: First, speakers will respond to a variety of questions, including: What is your organization's understanding of the current conditions facing educational labor? What organizing struggles and strategies is your organization currently engaged in? What successes and setbacks have you experienced? What opportunities are there for working together across our different contexts? In Part II, the session will move into break out groups where pairs of speakers will co-lead a discussion around the question: What practical steps can we take to build solidarity across our organizations and institutions? In Part III, we will re-assemble to share the different strategies and questions arising from the small group discussions. (Session organizers will subsequently compile the ideas from this session and distribute them among session participants.)
