NJEA Equity Alliance Conference
January 11, 2019 - January 12, 2019
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. The conference begins at the Robert Treat Hotel in Newark and culminates at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center.
Equity Alliance Awards
Nominations are 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.
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.
Preregistration is required by Nov. 30. Register for the conference and reserve your tickets for the Equity Alliance Conference here.
