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.

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.

Date:
Monday & Tuesday, Oct 16 & 17, 2017

Location:
The HUB, UW
4001 E Stevens Wy NE, Seattle, WA 98195

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.

There is a powerful historical relationship between our disconnection from the natural world and systems of human oppression. By grounding our social justice work in connection with nature, and our nature connection work in social justice, we gain access to new tools and strategies to bring healing and justice to all wounded places–our psyches, our human communities, and our ecosystems.

Join Pinar Ates Sinopoulos-Lloyd and Darcy Ottey of Youth Passageways’ Cross-Cultural Protocols Working Group for an experiential, body-based, trauma-informed workshop. Together, we will build an ecological understanding of power, privilege, and oppression, and explore our own niche within these contemporary structural dynamics.

We will explore power and privilege through the eyes of nature, gaining naturalist skills in awareness, observation, and tracking, and applying them to our social world. The skills and insights gained through our time together will further prepare you to show up with the community you serve, by providing new tools for working with trauma, addressing barriers to inclusivity embedded within your program or organization, and interrupting harmful behaviors.

The intention for our time is to build a community of practice from the region, who can continue to strengthen the intersection of nature connection and social justice work beyond our weekend together.

We will cover:

  • A map of social positions
  • Giving environmental educators a systems view of power and privilege
  • Widening awareness
  • Identifying our impact on the world
  • Building a community beyond this day

Meet your Instructors

Pınar has always been allured by how the natural world mirrors one’s internal landscape and the intersections they carry. Enchanted by the liminal, Pınar is a genderfluid QTPOC (Queer/Trans Person of Color) with their mother’s side native to the Americas and father’s side from Turkey which is where they grew up. Their self-designed studies include a B.A. in “Somatic & Depth Ecopsychology” from Prescott College, graduating from the Wilderness Awareness School’s Anake Outdoor School and Wildlife Tracking Intensive as well as other immersive studies at School of Lost Borders, Animas Valley Institute, Naropa University, and Esalen Institute. Pınar is the co-founder of Queer Nature, a collaborative vision with their spouse, So, to cultivate an earth-based queer community rooted in decolonial and queer rites of passage.

Since her wilderness-based coming of age experience through Rite of Passage Journeys at age 13, Darcy Ottey has been dedicated to creating intentional rite of passage experiences to help young people mature into healthy, capable adults.  As an initiated European-American woman (British/Ukrainian descent), she is particularly interested in how rites of passage can help develop both the individual capacities and the cultural will necessary to dismantle structures of oppression, as well as the role inheritors of race-based privilege can have in interrupting cycles of oppression those structures cause, helping to allow for the creation of truly thriving communities. Currently Stewarship Council Chair for Youth Passageways, Darcy has worked with a variety of youth-serving organizations as both rite of passage practitioner and administrator.  She holds an M.A. in Environment and Community from Antioch University Seattle.
