Dear Twin Cities Social Justice in Education Community,
is open for the 8th Annual Social Justice Education Fair! The theme this year is “We’re Fed Up! Bite the Hands that Feed Us: Resisting the Menu of Schooling”
. We are also happy to announce a new location for the fair…. the Science Museum of Minnesota
! The Ed Fair planning committee would like to give a HUGE thank you to folks from the Kitty Andersen Youth Science Center (KAYSC) for keeping the Ed Fair going by opening up their space. We are very excited about our new location, and the opportunity to continue expanding the Ed Fair community. Please spread the registration to all your networks. The fair is taking place Thursday October 18th from 8-4pm. It will feature a keynote with Appetite for Change
and Ricardo Levins Morales
. We have over 30 amazing workshops
that you can attend through the day, and lots of opportunities to connect across institutions and struggles!
Other things to consider:

- If your organization would like to table at the fair, its not too late. Click here for more info!
- Though the fair is entirely organized by volunteers, we need money to pay for food, childcare, interpretation, printing, and other fair expenses. Please if you can, donate when you register. The fair asks a suggested donation of $0-$40, which can be paid online or day of.
