Calling all Social Justice Sweethearts! Valentine’s Day is the day of loving, but have you learned to love yourself first? As educators we have a responsibility to promote our student’s self-esteem and foster an environment of body positivity that is free from discrimination.

How can we take educational strategies beyond the classroom to combat anti-Blackness and police violence? The Black Lives Matter movement is a fundamentally intersectional campaign combatting systematic violence against the global Black community.
Intersect Madrid believes now to be an ideal time for each individual to bring out their inner educator and find ways to inform others about this crucial movement and its impact on communities worldwide.

The global COVID-19 pandemic has exposed and exacerbated a global current of anti-Asian xenophobia, specifically toward the Chinese community. In this historic moment, we believe it is important to discuss the various battles faced by the Chinese community in Spain, from streets to schoolrooms.
In this virtual Q&A, we speak with Xirou Xiao and Yue Fu, two cofounders of Liwai an organization focused on intercultural mediation for the Chinese migrant community in Madrid, regarding the cultural history of the Chinese community in Spain and anti-Chinese discrimination in the classroom.

We know it has become trendy to call yourself a ‘feminist’ in recent times, and rightly so! However, with International Women’s Day approaching in March, what better way to kick off this year’s intersectional justice workshops than to discuss all things intersectional feminism in the classroom. Within this interactive workshop, we will share ideas and discourse surrounding intersectional feminism in Spain.

It's always a salient to time to think about the intersection of religion and education.
What effect does the dominance of Christianity in Western society have on students of diverse religious backgrounds, and how does this dominance enact itself in Spanish schools? How might we imagine classrooms in which a variety of religious backgrounds are uplifted and celebrated, and students feel comfortable expressing their religious beliefs? And how can we use lesson plans on religion to open larger discussions surrounding anti-Semitism and Islamophobia?
