March 2 North Surrey Secondary School, Surrey BC. Teaching for Joy and Justice-Cross Border Conference 2019
The Surrey Teachers Association International Solidarity Committee is pleased to announce that we will be hosting the second Cross Border Social Justice Conference on March 2, 2019. After Reclaiming Common Ground last year, thisars conference is focused on Teaching for Joy and Justice in our school This time we are inviting teachers, activists and artists from British Columbia, Washington and Oregon to imagine our classrooms as spaces where joy is the syncopation that sustains the work for justice. We are excited that thisyears keynote speaker will be Mercedes Martinez, the president of the Puerto RicoTeachers Federation who will be sharing her experiences of the dramatic events post-Hurricane Maria when the government moved quickly to privatize schools, (a classic example of the shock doctrin), and how the teachers and parents have resisted. We have had more than a few experiences of shock this past year as waves of hate have been regularly crashing against the marginalized in our communities but, we have noticed also that there has been a surge in the popularity of late night comedians who are responding to an apparent need for laughter to lighten the darkness. While our conference will begin with Mercedes as our Keynote, it will end with a Playnote, dancing to the beat of Queer as Funk. In between we will spend the afternoon in workshops on the issues of climate change, LGBTQ rights, Indigenous, poverty, peace and more. Please join us on Saturday 2 March 2019 as we share ideas and strategies as well as laughter and joy as we re-energize ourselves for the necessary work for justice in our world.
