2019 Northwest Conference on Teaching for Social Justice:
Rethinking Our Classrooms, Organizing for Better Schools
Saturday, October 19, 2019 — 8:00am – 4:30pm
Teachers, teacher educators, and community activists are invited to immerse themselves in a social justice teaching environment at the 12th Annual Northwest Conference on Teaching for Social Justice.
The keynote speaker is Barbara Madeloni, education coordinator for Labor Notes, and past president of the 117,000-member Massachusetts Teachers Association, where her presidency was based on union militancy, grassroots democracy, and a commitment to racial and economic justice. The title of her talk is “Why Social Justice Educators Need to Be Union Organizers.”
In addition to the keynote, the day is full of idea-rich, inspirational workshops (including many from Zinn Education Project contributors); a resource fair of community and social justice education groups; and lively conversations.
The conference will be held at Chief Sealth International High School.
