WECAN 2021 Early Childhood Educators Conference- February 5-7, 2021

Black Lives Matter in Waldorf Early Childhood Classrooms and Communities

Keynote Speaker Laleña Garcia

Nearly 900 Waldorf early childhood educators from throughout North America and around the world participated in our February online conference. This event was a historic moment in our work together on Diversity, Inclusion, Equity and Access. For the first time, we invited a keynote speaker from outside the Waldorf movement to help us to expand our awareness and work toward the kinder, more compassionate society we all know is possible.

The conversations on the conference theme will continue and resources will be shared on a new WECAN Community Hub subgroup, called 2021FebruaryConference Communications. To join, you can write to WECANFeb2021Conference+subscribe@wecan.groups.io

A whole-hearted thank you to everyone who contributed to this historic event!
