      This session explores some of the difficult topics that parents and organizations working with parents are facing throughout the country. What does it mean for the progress of community action when the NAACP vocally opposes charter schools? Are we doing enough as an education reform movement to protect the charter schools that are successful in this country? What needs to happen to close more schools that are failing? How do we bridge the gap between the grassroots organizations and the rest of the education reform community? How do we sustain long-lasting change? The panelists identify the parts of the education reform advocacy movement that are disconnected and broken and offer solutions for how to fix it. Russlynn Ali, Emerson Collective (Moderator) Alberto Retana, Community Coalition Michael Lomax (United Negro College Fund) Karen Martinez (Alum Rock School District) Shawn Sprewer, St. Marcus Lutheran School

        Marginal Voices is a theatre project initiated by Caryne Chapman Clark and managed by Odanadi UK. It was created for women who have been trafficked into prostitution and domestic slavery. The project aims to enable former victims to position themselves as experts: transforming traumatic experiences into positive change by raising public awareness and sensitising professionals. In the summer of 2012, five Marginal Voices participants and Artistic Director Caryne Chapman Clark joined forces with award winning playwright Bola Agabaje, choreographer Funmi Adewole and voice coach Helen Chadwick to develop ideas for a new play based on the women's own experiences about their daily struggle to rebuild their lives after trafficking. Once again Karen Martinez and Riposte Pictures were on hand to film the latest instalment of the women's journey towards their goal of staging a play.
