Perhaps the times we are now living through will at some point come to be known as The Age of Donald Trump and #MeToo! With the former comfortably in the past. And the latter the permanent democratic norm. Historically exemplified by the plethora of voices—prominent among them students and teachers—now speaking out, in these very times, for the healing of the plethora of abuses brought about by our longstanding submission to unjust, dehumanizing, and unnatural hierarchies of many kinds. Through whose voices the motto “We are the one ones we’ve been waiting for” will have become not just a one-time inducement to vote, but an everlasting call for all to live in truth. 

            This is the vision inspiring the 25th Annual Summer Conference of the NCTE Assembly for Expanded Perspectives on Learning—a vision that will be greatly, and directly, amplified by the presence there with us of the voices of you and your students!
