Praxis is excited to be a part of a new national learning community, Transformative Schools Network (TSN)!

This learning community is a collaboration with Alliance for Educational Justice (AEJ), the Community Justice Network for Youth (CJNY), Alliance for a Just Society & The Praxis Project. Our members are comprised over 40 organizations representing 44 states working together to develop and pass comprehensive school health and wellness policies that will transform schools to keep up with students’ needs in the 21st Century.

The Praxis Project board of directors announced today that Makani Themba will transition from her role as founding executive director by the end of this year. The transition signals a new phase in Praxis’ evolution as a leading grassroots movement institution in support of organizing and change work on the local, regional and national level.


A documentary film produced by the Greater New Orleans Organizers Roundtable

Watch now:
About the film and the Roundtable:

Almost one year ago in Ferguson, MO, police officer Darren Wilson shot and killed Mike Brown and left him lying in the street. Since then, the list of names of unarmed Black people whose lives have been taken by the police keeps growing.

One day after South Carolina removed the Confederate flag off the state’s capitol, close to 300 freedom fighters from across the nation convened in Raleigh, NC at Shaw University to connect, plot and build a better movement. Also fresh in our memories was the image of Bree Newsome climbing the flag pole in South Carolina just a week before and stating to the press, “The southern heritage I embrace is the legacy of a people unbowed by racial oppression.”
