Last year a Social Justice Committee was formed. As a steering committee we had three main goals: identify GNTA members that were already involved in social justice issues, identify the issues that were most important to our members, and create a calendar to advertise events supporting these issues. Slowly but surely, we are making progress towards achieving these goals.
There are seven main issues that, as a committee, we will focus our attention towards: fair trade, women’s rights, LGBTQ rights, wage equity, poverty and hunger, gun violence, and racial equality. All of these issues, in some way or another, impact our community as educators. Our goal is to present our members with the opportunity to make a difference with all or some of these causes. In order to do that we will be posting events on the calendar below that anyone can participate in.
Please feel free to send us information regarding other events that support our seven main issues. You can contact us via email at: email@example.com or fill our the event form below. Please be advised that we will only be posting non-denominational events, at this time.
As our work as a committee gets underway, we will keep you posted about updates.
