The AAACE in Action Project was initiated at the annual AAACE conference in Oklahoma City in November. Its goal is to facilitate advocacy by AAACE members to work for social justice by means of adult education. The Popular Education, Sustainability and Environmental Adult Education, and Minority Education SIGS and the Commission for Community, Minority, and Non-formal Education planned and coordinated the first session with many AAACE attendees brainstorming about issues and ideas for action.
AAACE in Action seeks to develop a social justice action plan that strengthens advocacy strategies for and by AAACE members and connects and supports practitioners, community representatives, and a community of scholars at local, regional, national and international levels. The ideas exchanged at this first session are currently being sorted and categorized to be written up in a report to the larger membership. Watch for updates and ways that you can become involved in this action initiative.
