Education Anew: Shifting Justice 2020 (EASJ2020) is a unique education and youth justice convening co-hosted by Andrus Family Fund (AFF) and the Communities for Just Schools Fund (CJSF) that will elevate the collective genius of organizers, advocates and youth who have dedicated their lives to creating safe and supportive schools, closing youth jails and prisons, ending the criminalization of and violence against young people of color, and transforming education and youth justice systems. Take a look at the video below for highlights from our EASJ2018 Conference held at the LaConcha Resort in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Lessons from EASJ 2016


The first Education Anew: Shifting Justice took place in 2016 in Memphis, TN—a city rich in civil rights history and tragedy. EASJ2016 was recognized as an innovative convening which gave organizations, leaders and youth from across sectors, a space to dream and strategize together about realizing their shared goal of eliminating injustice and ensuring a more equitable and inclusive future.

“One of the things that I loved about the conference was the diverse group of people that attended the conference. I also felt that people of color were centric throughout the process. I hope this keeps building and becomes annual.”
