RSVP for NYCoRE’s May Member Meeting

Do you identify as a teacher activist? What does that mean? How does it shape the way you teach? The way you move through the world?

There is no “how to” book for teacher activists, nor should there be. Being a teacher activist is not just something you do within the confines of your classroom or school day. We know that the struggle for justice does not end when the school bell rings, but how often do we take the time to reflect upon how our lives in and out of classrooms deeply inform the ways we do our teaching and activism? Based on research conducted by one of NYCoRE’s co-founders, Keith Catone, we will explore the key elements that make up the “pedagogy of teacher activism.” Come ready to take a pause to reflect upon your purpose, power, and possibility as a teacher activist.

In the second half of the meeting, we will have some time for Working Groups to meet and for new members to become oriented with NYCoRE in our NYCoRE 101 session.

Please join us!

Beyond Tolerance Conference on Friday, May 12

Beyond Tolerance Conference for Youth
FRIDAY, May 12th
City-As-School High School
16 Clarkson St, New York, NY 10014
4:30-8:30pm

Beyond Tolerance is an afternoon conference focused on issues of gender and sexuality. It is designed for youth and the adults who work with them.  It will provide participants with an opportunity to attend workshops, network with other attendees, and meet with people from local organizations that provide resources in our area.

Potential Schedule:
4:30pm – 5:20pm: Expo-style tabling & snacks (community groups and student groups)
5:30pm – 6:20pm: Session I workshops
6:30pm – 7:20pm: Session II workshops

7:30pm – 8:30pm: Open Mic

NYQueer is committed to offering a conference that is accessible to all.  We recently learned that City-as-School will not have a functional elevator at the time of our Beyond Tolerance conference this year. There is a wheelchair-accessible ramp into the school building located in the rear entrance to the school on West Houston Street.

If you or your students are in need of accessibility accommodations, we ask that you let us know prior to the day of the conference, either on your registration form or by emailing us directly at nyqueer@gmail.com. Our accessibility coordinator will follow up with you to make sure all steps are taken to make Beyond Tolerance accessible as is needed by our participants.
