Mission Statement

Resistance Education believes that…  

  • We must affirm and inform our communities and ourselves every chance we get

  • Everything is a learnt practice, whether it is generationally passed down or a new practice that a single individual acquired. What is learnt can also be unlearned (or at least shifted)

  • Educational settings (classrooms, after schools, workshops, etc) must connect Black and brown people to communities of spiritual activism throughout the world

Resistance Education is what the Women & Femmes of Color who have raised me, guided me, protected me, strengthened me [Past. Present. And Future] called me to do. And for that I must thank them and do the work. - Cheyenne Wyzzard-Jones (Founder, Resistance Education)

Purpose

  • To inform institutions, community leaders, educators, youth, and anyone who is interested on how to pass down knowledge in responsible impactful ways

  • To create spaces (physically, virtually, and spiritually) for communities to gather so we can learn, share, create, and pass down stories of identity, purpose, and visions of a better world

  • To provide a space where academic theory and best practices are explained and informed by Black and brown communities.

  • To connect people who are doing the work (artist, community organizers, academics, parents, youth) in one space

  • To decolonize violent educational systems

Why Work With Us?

Resistance Education provides tailored trainings, organizational assessments, and consultation to clients including schools, organizations, community organizers, and youth workers.

You can never stop learning! As educators, community leaders, and organizers it is crucial to continue our own learning, as we are in the service of teaching others what we have learned.

We are curators of knowledge, using different mediums to curate safer spaces for people to learn and create. We have worked with various entities throughout the world to develop spaces of healing, specifically for those of the most marginalized. By working directly with impacted communities of social injustices we work to develop specific tools that help serve and mobilize their community. We have collaborated with artist, educators, organizers, and global non-profits for more than 7 years.  The vision of Resistance Education as educators, writers, and organizers is to pass down and develop tools of social engagement for a better world.

Radical Curriculum 

It is our truest passion to create a liberating form of education that heals by connecting black and brown people together. These radical curriculums are created to bring the lived experiences, voices, and truth of black and brown people from throughout the world into our community classrooms.

"For those of us who write, it is necessary to scrutinize not only the truth of what we speak, but the truth of that language by which we speak it. For others, it is to share and spread also those words that are meaningful to us. But primarily for us all, it is necessary to teach by living and speaking those truths which we believe and know beyond understanding. Because in this way alone we can survive, by taking part in a process of life that is creative and continuing, that is growth"
