Founder, Love in Public, community-rooted dual-language teacher, poet, and transformative justice leader
As a community-rooted teacher, poet, and transformative justice practitioner, Love in Public’s founder and lead trainer, Cecelia Jordan, brings her background in youth work and dual-language teaching, which spans nearly a decade at every level of k-12 education, and Restorative Justice. She holds a Masters in Transformative School Leadership from University of San Francisco. Through Love In Public, she provides authentic and tailored learning experiences for justice-oriented organizations to build strong relationships, center the identities and experiences of those most pushed to the margins, and catalyze those findings to inform a path toward organizational change and sustainability. She integrates critical pedagogy, transformative justice, and healing practices into learning work which is based in theoretical understandings of Black queer feminism, Latinx Critical Theory, Tribal Crit, and more. She works with folx to engage in simulations, poetry, speech, and opinion writing workshops, gallery walks, improvisation theatre, deep listening activities, circles, and more.
