ATJ has periodically had its own educational forums in order to establish and re-establish our vision. We have also partnered with other community organizations, such as Valencia State College’s Peace and Justice Institute, to work with the public.
ATJ’s educational forums successfully brought the story of the Ocoee Massacre to the public. After telling the story with a slide show and short film, small break-out sessions took place where audience members became active in communicating their encounters with racism. Scholars, community members, and voting experts spoke, providing information for dialogue.
