Teaching for Social Justice Conference, Oct. 2


Dear Portland Area Rethinking Schools friends,

The Northwest Teaching for Social Justice conference is just about a month away. Madison High School, Oct. 2. Registration at www.nwtsj.org. We have over 60 great workshops lined up, and of course, are thrilled that Sonia Nieto -- author of AFFIRMING DIVERSITY, THE LIGHT IN THEIR EYES, and WHY WE TEACH -- will be keynoting. Community groups from all over the region will be participating in our Resource Fair.

Don't miss this opportunity to draw inspiration and ideas from social justice educators from around the Northwest.

Check out the attached flyer -- and forward it widely -- and register at www.nwtsj.org.

See you October 2nd at Madison High School.
