Keynote by Jane Elliott.
Former Schoolteacher, Anti-Racism Activist, Educator, Feminist & LGBT Activist
Jane Elliott - internationally known teacher, lecturer, diversity trainer, and recipient of the National Mental Health Association Award for Excellence in Education, exposes prejudice and bigotry for what it is, an irrational class system based upon purely arbitrary factors.
And, if you think this does not apply to you . . . you are in for a rude awakening.
