20th Annual CWRU Social Justice Teach-In

Peacemaking Through Art and Storytelling


IRTF & CWRU’s annual Social Justice Teach-In is a great opportunity for people of all ages to gain the information, practical skills, and resources to work for peace, economic justice, and human rights! This annual event attracts hundreds of participants, most from area high schools and colleges. Choose from 30-40 workshops on local and global justice issues. Get skills training to work for social change!

The Teach-In will begin and end with an inspiring keynote and performances by Olmeca, a bilingual Latinx hip-hop artist, producer, activist, and scholar who intersects various identities and demographics. The son of immigrants who grew up in the barrios of L.A., Olmeca is one of the few artists who broke ground as an artist and advocate for human rights. His unique writing talent in both English and Spanish has gained the attention of hip-hop and alt-Latinx music audiences. His lyrics are written to encourage critical thinking, transformative education, cultural/political empowerment, and social justice. Olmeca is a graduate of California State University-L.A. in Latin American Studies and Philosophy.
