2014 NW Teaching Social Justice Conf. workshop proposals

Dear Northwest Teaching for Social Justice friends,

Remember that the deadline is coming up for submission of workshop proposals for the 2014 Northwest Teaching for Social Justice conference -- which will be held in Portland at Madison High School on Saturday, October 18th. Deadline for proposals is July 1.  Go to www.nwtsj.org and click on "Workshop Proposal Application" in the upper left. These conferences have gotten better and better over the years. Last year's conference at Chief Sealth International High School in Seattle drew close to 900 people, and as always, was a festival of critical social justice teaching and activism. See our website for programs from past conferences.

Also, the conference includes a Resource Fair for community nonprofits and social justice organizations. If your organization would like to participate, click on "Resource Fair" at our website.
Please spread the word and join us in October at Madison High School.
