The Sojourner Truth School for Social Change Leadership has released its new catalog of classes for Fall 2022. The catalog lists 40 different  courses that will be offered between now and the end of the year. As always, all classes are FREE.  Some classes are on Zoom and some are in person at sites in Springfield, Holyoke, Easthampton, and Northampton, so when registering please pay special attention to the class location.  All classes are taught by BIPOC people or biracial pairs. Most classes are one-session and a few are multi-sessions. We are excited to provide another rich semester of thought provoking and life-changing classes taught by a fantastic, inspiring and brilliant group of trainers.  The catalog is being distributed throughout the community and can be found online here.

β€œIt has been my mission since attending Truth School workshops to help guide the town of Amherst in being a welcoming, inclusive, accessible, and equitable form of local government.  The Truth School inspired me to move forward in what is now my life’s work.  I would like others to experience the awesomeness of the Truth School as well.”
