"Teach Climate Justice" Happy Hour: Thursday at the PAT

in

Dear Portland-area Rethinking Schools friends,

As many of you know, in 2016 the Portland Public Schools board of education passed the most comprehensive climate justice resolution in the nation. Please join us on Thursday, January 17, at the Portland Association of Teachers to explore ways to make climate justice a more central part of our curriculum.

This is Portland's first Teach Climate Justice happy hour event. Our goal is to connect educators and community members to share climate justice knowledge and curriculum related to the climate crisis. We’ll enjoy food, beverage, and one another’s company as we do this important work. All invited — including community and non-PPS teachers.

What:
Teach Climate Justice Happy Hour

Where:
Portland Association of Teachers
345 NE 8th Ave.
Portland (near Benson High School)

When:
