At last week’s campaigns meet-up, educators, students, community organizers, and parents came together to discuss a wide variety of campaigns and organizing in the Twin Cities social justice education movement. Stay tuned for more information about upcoming meet-ups for the campaigns track and parent track!
Help us meet our fundraising needs for this year’s fair!
Based on last year’s costs and our expected increase in size this year, we are estimating that we will need to raise $2,000 in addition to other fundraising we are engaged in. Please contribute what you can to help us reach our goal and to continue to make the fair free to attend with meals and childcare provided for all!
Please share this indie-go-go campaign with others!
We are now accepting workshop proposals:
We’re looking for quality workshops of all types by students, parents, school staff, educators, after school workers, and community members for this year’s theme *Nothing About Us Without Us Is For Us*. Check out our website for more information about the theme and to submit a proposal.
Don’t forget to submit a workshop proposal for this year’s fair! Proposals are due by August 31, 2014.
