Our adopted charities for the Fall 2022 #TheEdCollabGathering will be RAICES and the Abolitionist Teaching Network

Because #TheEdCollabGathering is a day of free learning, we invite you to donate what you would have spent on coffee, lunch, or even registration for an amazing day like this—pay forward to support others.

RAICES was chosen by our Opening Keynote, Donalyn Miller.
