In an attempt to continue to support the growing numbers and range of people attending the conference, we are now offering housing assistance. At the bottom of the registration form, you can indicate if you are in need of housing, or if you have housing to offer. As this is a completely volunteer run and community supported event, we the organizers promise to try to accommodate all housing requests, but we take no liability for any problems that may incur through this process.

For housing questions, OR if you are able to provide housing, please email

We would like to keep the Northwest Conference on Teaching for Social Justice green. Please plan to bring your own water/coffee/beverage container as we will not provide bottled beverages.
