Calling All Hope Dealers! Everyone Has a Story, Every Story Deserves Heroes

Hasan Davis will share his experience of often interrupted transitions through education, justice, and social support systems. Throughout Hasan’s journey outliers and resistors found ways to engage, encourage and empower him. With the support of these “Hope Dealers,” Hasan transcended his mounting list of “failures” to become an advocate for himself and eventually a champion for others. Through story and spoken word, Hasan will share how his champions (Hope Dealers) helped him complete the “JD shuffle” going from Hasan Davis, Juvenile Delinquent to Hasan Davis, Juris Doctor.  Come ready to celebrate, recharge and recommit to being the Hope Dealers that you are.

90 Min Workshop - June 15 at 9:00-10:45 AM ET

Pages from the Hope Dealers Handbook Exploring H.O.P.E. (Humanity, Optimism, Perspective, and Empathy)

Hasan believes that each person has the opportunity, and the responsibility, to influence and improve the way youth encounter the education, justice, and social service systems. In this 90-minute creative engagement workshop, Hasan will introduce participants to a few of the tools he has used for more than 2 decades to build community in the classroom. Creating learning environments where students feel known, loved, and inspired often begins with our willingness to surrender our “one-up relationship” , our absolute authority for the possibility of shared accountability. To co-create a new type of learning environment Hasan will introduce participants to two amazing tools. The R.O.P.E.S method of setting ground rules and expectations, and The Bio Poem. Come ready to journal, create, imagine, and explore your work as we dive into the first chapter of The Hope Dealers Handbook.
