Nominations are now open for four awards that will recognize advocacy and achievement in equity and justice. The awards will be presented at NJEA’s first-ever Equity Alliance Weekend to be held on Jan. 11-12, just prior to the holiday observing Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday.
The Equity Alliance Weekend is an expansion and reconfiguration of three annual NJEA events: the NJEA Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Human and Civil Rights Celebration, the NJEA Urban Education Symposium, and the NJEA Minority Leadership and Recruitment Conference. The weekend will feature training on social justice issues and social justice activism, recognizing the intersection of diverse identities and circumstances among NJEA members and the communities they serve.
In addition, four of NJEA’s highest awards will be presented at the Human and Civil Rights Celebration, which will be a highlight of the Equity Alliance Weekend.
Nomination forms and documentation for any of these four awards are due Dec. 1, 2018.
