Propose a workshop for Teaching for Social Justice conference

in

Dear Northwest Teaching for Social Justice friends,

As you know, last year's conference in Portland was a joyful, inspiring, and thought-provoking gathering -- with about 1,350 educators from around the Northwest. Next fall, we'll be back in Seattle, and anticipate another great event -- Saturday, October 19th. Details at www.nwtsj.org. Please mark your calendar.

I'm writing to encourage you to consider submitting a workshop proposal for the conference. Deadline for submissions is Sunday, July 7. Go to www.nwtsj.org and look in the “Workshops” column. If you encounter problems or have questions, write rfp@nwtsj.org.

Thanks for your important work.
