“I feel like I've found my PEOPLE!!!! I wasn't able to attend the previous live, but it was SO good! Thank you to Akilah and Marley for that good fresh language to illuminate what the hell we're experiencing at our varying degrees of our deschooling and unschooling. I am so very very grateful for everyone here. One love 💜”Felicia C.about Raising Free People Workshop

Raising Free People™
Raising Free People™ examines the ways that we’ve accepted coercive, emotionally and physically damaging habits as a normal part of adult-child relationships. With a focus on deschooling one’s self, decolonizing education, and exploring radical self-expression, RFP both challenges and informs us to push past coercion and fear, and walk toward a model for living with children that centers community, addresses social justice issues, and believes in trusting and respecting children.
the belief that the act of acquiring knowledge and skills should derive from the self-chosen activities and life experiences of the person, this includes children.
From BIPoC communities immersed in the philosophies and practices of raising free people.
It wasn't my first, but @fareofthefreechild was the one [podcast] that hit me in a way that made me feel truly represented and craved more of the conversations that were happening. I even tried to host listening parties with the homeschooling families.@takishamillerInstagram
@fareofthefreechild has helped me to BREAK FREE from much of my systematic thinking. Public and private schools teach our children what "they" want them to know. I am so thankful for the WORK you. Keep spreading awareness.@marliabryonnehallInstagram
