Last year’s Northwest Teaching for Social Justice Conference at Madison High School in Portland was a festival of ideas, resources, inspiration, and social justice. About 1,350 participants came from all over Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia — and some from farther away. Dozens of community groups shared resources. Keynote speaker Winona LaDuke was magnificent. As always, the center of the conference was the three sessions of workshops — more than 80 of them — offered by practicing educators. These were participatory, idea-rich, practical, and filled with insights about what it means to be a social justice educator.

The conference will be held at Chief Sealth International High School.
