Teaching for Social Justice Conference Events this Weekend

18 Oct

This Saturday is the Northwest Teaching for Social Justice Conference in Seattle.  Creativity Not Control folks will be participating, and we’ll also be organizing the following events:

1) We’ll be tabling all day on Saturday during the conference – look for the bright orange and yellow banner that one of us made for this Saturday’s action at the Horace Mann building. 1378228_10152010496547642_2118418197_n

2) Some of us are going to go visit the Africatown Innovation Center at Horace Mann after the conference on Saturday. We’ll leave Chief Sealth at 4:45 and will get to Horace Mann, at 25th and Cherry, by 5:15. If you want to carpool, please look for us at the Creativity Not Control table.  For more info on groundbreaking work happening at Mann, check out: http://www.more4mann.blogspot.com/

3) People from around the Northwest will be coming to town, and some of us want to meet up to get to know each other and talk about what’s going on in our schools and our cities.

We’ll be hanging out from 9-11:30 PM at Saba Restaurant on Fri night, 110 12th Ave, Seattle, WA.  Come join us, kick back a bit before the conference, and meet other teachers, parents, and community members who are frustrated with the current state of education and want to do something about it.

Please share this invite with folks who might be interested. You don’t have to be a student, teacher, or a public school parent to come – what happens in the schools affects all of us.

Also, the place we are meeting doesn’t have an age limit so people of all ages are welcome.

      Yeah, it’s too bad. Where do you live now?

        Well, if you ever travel out to the NW, we should meet up.
