Competency #2: Pre-Workshop Experience


Frontlines of Justice (“FoJ”) is an online, video-centric eLearning platform for compelling social, racial, and educational justice through compelling content to support cultural competence development. We are the social justice Masterclass in the field of education and hope to create a more equitable society through the reimagination of professional development that focuses on critical social justice issues.

To this end, responses to the end-of-session surveys are important.
