Pierce Delahunt (they/them) holds an M.Ed. from the Institute for Humane Education. Their research was a study of activist-education programs throughout the country. Pierce has worked with Youth Empowered Action, an activist-education summer camp, since 2014. They grew up in New York and New Jersey, and currently live in a eco-van traveling the country and speaking at schools. They are a member of Resource Generation and Patriotic Millionaires, two groups that organize wealthy folk to leverage their privileges toward collective liberation. Pierce sees their own work as the union of social-emotional learning and activist-education. They most focus on sociopolitical involvement and intervention methods, with training in nonviolent communication and empathetic listening. They work from the frame that individualist social-emotional learning is insufficient: Our capacity to have fulfilling lives and relationships cannot come at the expense of other communities' abilities to do the same. If our peace, love, light, and whole-child education movements do not address systemic injustice, then they are none of those things.
