The Seattle Freedom School is being organized by The People’s Institute Northwest and the American Friends Service Committee.

Tyree Scott Leadership Institute

The Tyree Scott Leadership Institute (Freedom School) is a powerful participatory experience for young people designed to inspire a lifetime of community involvement. Youth analyze the systems that perpetuate violence and injustice and learn about social change movements, empowering them to promote racial justice, human rights and peace.

What is Popular Education?

An Active Learning Process: Popular education is an active learning process that raises social awareness; stimulates critical and creative thinking; and leads to action for social change. Paulo Freire, the Brazilian educator, became renowned for his methods of popular education developed through his work with poor and disenfranchised communities in Latin America during the 1960s and ‘70s.
