Educational Services and Social ServicesUSAYeshttps://linkedin.com/in/elitalayaelitalaya.comI am a education liberation activist, poet, and speaker who has been professionally consulting organizations, programs, and individuals on critical social justice dialogues since 2017.

As Principal Consultant for The Center for Critical Mentoring and Youth Work, I disrupt oppressive institutions by supporting student activism, abolitionist social change, and fostering liberatory spaces for professionals and practitioners.
9300 plusI offer offer poetry readings, course visits, workshop facilitation, and ready-to-go presentations on: my lived experiences and education journey, student activism, youth leadership, critical mentoring, JEDI and oppression 101, anti-oppressive education and counseling practices, trans and gender-inclusive schools, LGBTQ+ social change, Black wellness and healing, education trauma and inequity, and liberatory language. I see speaking invitations as community storytelling opportunities that are purposefully meant to invite you to reach deep into your being. Who are you? What are the stories that have been told about you? To you? Which ones have you claimed? Is there anything that can be reclaimed? Most importantly, where is there space to unlearn, emancipate, and liberate yourself, your beliefs, the work, and our communities? I am committed to demanding more than minimal from institutions, organizations, and individuals. I call on us to co-create change, harness our collective power, and fuck shit up.
