2019 Theme:

Be the Change: Social Justice in and through Education in a Post-Truth Era

April 6, 2019

Keynote Address: Danna Lomax, Ventura Unified School District, Recipient of the 2018 TEACHING FOR TOLERANCE AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE IN TEACHING

The School of Education at Channel Islands (CSUCI) invites you to submit a proposal to present at the 11th Annual Conference for Social Justice in Education. The daylong conference, offered at no cost to participants, will be held on Saturday, April 6, 2019 (8:00 am to 2:00 pm) on the campus of CSUCI. The purpose of the annual event is to showcase the social justice oriented work being done in and around schools and educational institutions in the region, to network with others who believe in the power and necessity of such work, and to learn from one another about how best to teach and learn in ways that promote equity, peace, and integrity in public education. 

This year’s theme is Be the Change: Social Justice in and through Education in a Post-Truth Era. The theme builds on the powerful scholarship of previous conferences and highlights the essential process of networking, of building a common agenda, and of creating opportunities for collaborative impact to achieve social justice by and through education.

Our vision is that this year’s conference will provide attendees with opportunities to have thoughtful conversations about research, policies, and practices that either undermine or advance the goal of achieving social justice in and through education. The conference is a venue for critical thinking and sharing insights into what works – and to inspire all of us to collaborate in moving that work forward. Participants will walk away with: (1) greater understanding of the research, policies and practices that undermine or advance social justice in and through education; (2) ideas for action and opportunities to pursue reforms to create equitable learning opportunities for all students; (3) connections with others in the community who are working toward social justice in education.

Attendance is free and open to the public. Register online here.

Walk-ins can register at the event on April 6 at 8:00 on a space-available basis, but we encourage online registration so we can plan efficiently for lunch (which will be provided free of charge by conference sponsors).
