The School for Conversion works for beloved communities that unlearn habits of social division.
We are a school, a space for education and re-education, inspired largely by the popular education model developed at the Highlander Center. We believe education comes from people gathering to listen, learn, and share with each other. This kind of education is particularly powerful when people come together across lines of division that would typically separate them--whether it is race, class, religion, or incarceration. We strive to create spaces where “surprising friendships” can happen, and we believe these relationships can convert people to a new way of living together and being in the world.
