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 our 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.
