Year of Remembrance: Glimpses of a Forever Foreigner

On display February 17, 2017 – February 11, 2018


On February 19, 1942, President Franklin D. Roosevelt issued Executive Order 9066, which resulted in the forced removal and incarceration of 120,000 Japanese and Japanese Americans. They were charged with no crime. The cause of their imprisonment was their ancestry.


This exhibition recognizes the 75th Anniversary of Executive Order 9066, and explores historic and contemporary issues of racism, discrimination and human rights.

FACILITATION SKILLS FUNDAMENTALS
SEPTEMBER 15TH, 8:3OAM-12:30PM in Seattle

One of the most important skills of an effective community leader is the ability to facilitate group discussions and help groups make decisions together in a way that engages the voices of everyone in the group.  Too often, we get thrown into the role of facilitator without having been taught the fundamentals and/or had a chance to practice.  In this workshop, you will have an opportunity to both learn and practice the fundamentals in a fun, interactive, and non-threatening environment.

Leadership Practices
September 26th, 2017
12:30pm-4:30pm

Waiting for the bus. Shopping for groceries. Attending events. We see our neighbors and coworkers, but how well do we understand and connect with each other? Although we are living side-by-side, our experiences with these common activities can differ significantly based on our social memberships. In many ways we live in parallel universes with different realities often separated along demographic lines.

What does it mean to be a whole community, and what does it take to build it in an ever-changing, siloed multicultural society? How is being a “holder of community” a vital role for leaders? What brings people together to collectively forge solutions to critical issues of our day?

This workshop considers those questions, as it explores the interface between leadership and community in a society both blessed and challenged by cultural difference. Using CEL’s framework for advancing social change in service of the common good, this workshop will explore leadership principles and practices that help build healthy, just, inclusive communities.

Bridge Conference 2017


Registration Now Live

The premier conference for expanded learning professionals in the Pacific Northwest is returning to the University of Washington October 16 & 17, 2017!

Our theme this year is Together We Rise. What does it take for young people to thrive? Creating inclusive environments for young people goes beyond offering fun enrichment and quality academic supports. Young people also need places where they can heal wounds created by exclusion and inequity. Young people need tools and supports to empower them to become change agents.

Together We Rise means programs, communities and families work together to advocate for inclusive programs. We will ensure young people are not just resilient, but are self-aware; not just leaders, but thoughtful individuals invested in their futures and the future of their communities. Highlighted sessions include community organizing, engaging families, being a change agent within our programs and communities.

Stay tuned for keynote and workshop session announcements later this spring.

Monday & Tuesday, Oct 16 & 17, 2017

Together We Rise: A Theme for Our Conference, and Our Times

Our theme at this year’s Bridge Conference is more relevant than ever as we work to create safe, equitable environments for young people that counter the racism and hate so rampant in this uncertain time in our nation and world’s history.

Together We Rise frames our learning at Bridge this year on how expanded learning programs, communities, and families can work together to advocate for inclusive programs. How can we as professionals working with young people, ensure they are not just resilient, but self-aware; not just leaders, but thoughtful individuals invested in their futures and the future of their communities.

The following workshops provide a sample of the offerings speaking to the content areas of educational equity and social emotional learning, both strong tracks at this year’s conference.

Northwest Conference on Teaching for Social Justice
Oct 21 @ 8:00 am

Hello,


We would like to invite you and your organization to participate in the Resource Fair at the 10th Annual Northwest Teaching for Social Justice Conference. The Conference will be held on Saturday, October 21st, at Chief Sealth International High School in Seattle, WA.


More than 1,200 educators, students, and parents participated in last year’s NWTSJ in Portland. The conference offers the opportunity for participants to build social justice networks of people, knowledge, and resources. The Resource Fair is an extension of the conference, and provides a space for conference participants to learn more about local, regional, and national non-profit organizations committed to social justice education.


We welcome nonprofit, social justice organizations that support the mission of the conference, and whose practice demonstrably aligns with our aims. We share the perspective of our co-sponsor, Rethinking Schools, which is “dedicated to sustaining and strengthening public education through social justice teaching and education activism.” Like Rethinking Schools we strive to “promote equity and racial justice in the classroom. We encourage grassroots efforts in our schools and communities to enhance the learning and well-being of our children, and to build broad democratic movements for social and environmental justice.” We strive to work for peace and justice not only in the United States, but throughout the world, and oppose war, militarism, colonialism, and occupation.


Resource Fair Logistics:

  • Doors open to Resource Fair presenters at 7:30am on the day of the conference.
  • If you are interested in applying for this year’s Resource Fair, please complete the Resource Fair Info Form. If you have questions, please contact Heather Griffin: hlgriffin@seattleschools.org.
