Center for Hope And Justice Education
The Center for Hope & Justice Education (CHJE) and the Teaching for Hope and Justice Network (THJN) support inquiry-based professional development by uniting teachers and students with community and university educators in an effort to bring about more humane and inclusive educational practices.
The Center for Hope & Justice Education is a grassroots collaborative effort in the Cincinnati region to support teachers and students in leading the change for more meaningful schooling, teaching, and learning practices. It believes in the power of teacher and student knowledge and ideas.
