Dear Portland Rethinking Schools friends,

The deadline for submissions for next fall's 3rd Annual Northwest Teaching for Social Justice conference is this Wednesday, June 30. Go to the conference website, www.nwtsj.org, for details. Click on "Workshop Proposal App."

We're very excited about the conference. Sonia Nieto is keynoting, and several hundred social justice educators from throughout the Northwest will be gathering in Portland. (The conference is Sat. Oct. 2, at Portland's Madison High School.)

Please consider submitting a proposal.

Thanks.  Bill Bigelow (bill@rethinkingschools.org)
