Welcome to the Joint Conference
NEA Human and Civil Rights encourages you to participate in the 2013 Joint Conference on Concerns of Minorities and Women. This is a unique opportunity to share and network with educators from around the country. Our theme this year is Action Now: Organizing the Power of Diversity.
We convene at a time when our core value of a just society is under siege. It's also a time, however, when there are opportunities for us to seize. After all, minorities and women re-elected Barack Obama President of the United States. That empowers us—along with the demographic changes which are reshaping our society. The power of diversity is more than a slogan—it is the new American reality.
During the two-day conference, we will explore the different ways to overcome the social justice challenges that impact educators and the students we serve. And we will examine the latest education research and best practices for improving the education of our students. You won’t want to miss this opportunity.
