We hope that you and your organization will join us at the 16th annual NW Teaching for Social Justice Conference on Saturday, October 21st at Parkrose High School in Portland, Oregon. (Please note the new location.) An extension of our annual conference, The Northwest Teaching for Social Justice Resource Fair provides a space for conference participants to learn more about local, regional, and national non-profit organizations committed to social justice education.
We welcome nonprofit, social justice organizations that support the mission of the conference, and whose practice demonstrably aligns with our aims. Please take a look at our statement below and tell us in the linked form about how your organization aligns with the NWTSJ mission. https://forms.gle/LrE1fRWHDmuvpFsd6
We share the perspective of our co-sponsor Rethinking Schools, which is “dedicated to sustaining and strengthening public education through social justice teaching and education activism.” Like Rethinking Schools we strive to “promote equity and racial justice in the classroom. We encourage grassroots efforts in our schools and communities to enhance the learning and well-being of our children, and to build broad democratic movements for social and environmental justice.” We strive to work for peace and justice not only in the United States, but throughout the world, and oppose war, militarism, colonialism, and occupation.
After approval, we’ll send you a link for registration. We request $35 per organization to help defray the costs of the conference.
