Caroline Loomis is an educator and trainer specializing in facilitation trainings, curriculum development, and anti-oppression workshops. She is currently a doctoral candidate in Geography at the City University of New York’s Graduate Center, where she studies how children, families, and educators experience school reform and neighborhood change. At CUNY, she also serves as an Instructional Technology Fellow, helping Macaulay Honors College faculty integrate creative pedagogy and technology into their courses.

Prior to pursuing her PhD, Caroline worked in the areas of food justice and youth development for over a decade. She designed and led farm-based youth programs, and coordinated after-school programs focusing on arts, science and social-emotional skills.


My facilitation work is rooted in a commitment to racial and social justice, and a conviction that how we think, create, and play together matters deeply. I love supporting groups and organizations in building healthy practices of collaboration, action, reflection and learning.

I offer one-time and multi-session trainings in facilitation, curriculum development and program design. I also offer anti-oppression workshops, often with a co-facilitator.

I have worked with the following groups and organizations:

Brecht Forum – Grassroots Fundraising Conference
Brooklyn Filmmakers Collective
Challenging Male Supremacy Project
Columbia University – Men’s Peer Education Program
CUNY Law School – Racial and Social Justice Orientation
East New York Farms
Growing Food and Justice Initiative
Meerkat Media Collective
Red Hook Initiative
Rude Mechanical Orchestra
Space-Time Research Collaborative
Transportation Alternatives
United Methodist Women


I am an affiliate with the Interaction Institute for Social Change, and I occasionally facilitate with the wonderful people at the AORTA Collective (Anti-Oppression Resource and Training Alliance).




I am a doctoral candidate in Geography at the CUNY Graduate Center, working at the intersections of social justice, space/place and education. My research centers on childhood, schooling, race and gentrification in New York City.
