Welcome What is PEP? Together we have decades of experience working in diverse communities of struggle, including organizing workers, immigrants, homeless people, survivors of police abuse, youth, faith communities, antiwar, and local peace economy activists.
PEP is a collective of hopeful militants, indignant with the injustice in the world and committed to overcoming global oppression and exploitation, wherever it exists. As organizers, we have experienced the challenges in understanding how our economic system is built and how our society works.
As a result of our collective lack of political education, we have struggled to diagnose our issues, determine the most appropriate demands, and connect with other groups with whom we could build power, especially groups outside the United States. As a political education collective in the United States of North America, PEP, we understand the necessity of internationalism, anti-imperialism, and the rejection of American exceptionalism through struggle and solidarity with the dispossessed worldwide.
Our Vision We built PEP to provide a space for organizers, leaders, and activists to study, discuss, and reflect on the issues that we encounter in Teaching project society and in our political and economic system.
Our work is inspired by the popular education programs of movements across Latin America and more than a century of revolutionary struggles in Russia, China, and beyond. We apply popular education, understanding it as the scientific study of society, starting from the material reality and the knowledge of the dispossessed.
We study the issues in our communities by building a critical dialogue and by looking to the theories that have historically explained the problems of the poor and the working class.
Popular and Political Education Some elements of the concepts of popular education trace back to the French Revolution in It evolved in the nineteenth century and reached a critical juncture in the aftermath of the Soviet revolution of and then was advanced further by the work of Antonio Gramsci in Italy.
During this period liberation theology emerges focusing on organizing within ecclesiastical communities and revolutionary left cadre developed radical techniques for adult education and new processes for political formation.
How We Work Short Courses: PEP coordinates, co-leads, and participates in short educational sessions lasting from one to three days.
Our Teaching Tolerance project combats prejudice among our nation’s youth while promoting equality, inclusiveness and equitable learning environments in the classroom. Teaching Tolerance provides free resources to educators—teachers, administrators, counselors and other practitioners—who work with children from kindergarten through high school. Educators use our materials to supplement the curriculum, to inform their practices, and to create civil and inclusive school communities where children are . The Personal Genetics Education Project raises awareness and sparks conversation about the potential benefits as well as the ethical, legal, and social implications of personal genetics. We strive to be inclusive of all voices in these discussions, regardless of socioeconomic or educational background, cultural or religious affiliation, and ethnic or personal identity.
These typically take place on site with a particular organization. The content of these types of programs will be designed together with the local group after studying and reviewing the themes the local group would like to focus on and gain a deeper understanding of. For a more focused and intense program of study, PEP will organize retreat-style intermediate courses.
These courses typically last five to ten days and bring together participants from more than one organization. In these spaces, PEP will work to create a holistic learning experience, drawing from our four pillars of ideological education: These courses require that participants make a commitment to sleep and remain at the retreat for the entire duration of the course.
The content of the intermediate courses is less issue-based and more theoretical, seeking to begin building a broad analysis and diagnosis of the issues we encounter.
To further the development of a study practice within organizations, PEP hosts a several-week summer school once a year.
These courses are co- created by participants, who are seen as essential builders of the course, producing a rich space for theoretical study and debate grounded in real organizing and struggle. The Summer School of Resistance requires participants with a high level of commitment to working-class struggle and with a desire to engage in a process of lifelong political education.
Debate and Conjunctural Analysis and Continued Study: PEP members will participate in, lead, and facilitate sessions of discussion and debate regarding the current social, political, and economic context of our struggle to further develop an understanding of political economy.
