Free Minds Free People Conference Scholarship Fund

Every two years over 1000 people gather at Free Minds Free People  (FMFP), a national conference convened by the Education for Liberation Network in partnership with local organizers in the host city. This year, from July 11-14, we are excited to meet in the Twin Cities, Minnesota. Conference scholarships will support youth, educators, and activists from across the country who would otherwise face financial barriers to attending and presenting at FMFP. 

FMFP is a special space and place, no small part of which is due to the leadership of youth, educators, and activists from communities across the country. Many of these leaders present about their work, ideas, hopes, and dreams during FMFP sessions, and the 2019 conference shaping up to be one of the best yet! Please join me and dozens of others in donating to the FMFP Conference Scholarship Fund to make it possible for those who need financial support to participate in this amazing experience.

Any donation will help make an impact. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to so many.

More information:

FMFP  is a national conference convened by the Education for Liberation Network that brings together teachers, young people, researchers, parents and community-based activists/educators from across the country to build a movement to develop and promote education as a tool for liberation. Check out a video from the 2017 conference:


The Education for Liberation Network  is a national network founded and primarily facilitated by folks of color, that focuses on liberatory education by connecting a spectrum of members through the honest love and work of communities. We are an empowering and welcoming community that both inspires people and helps them learn and grow in ways that support a more just society.
