The conference is being held on Monday, April 28 from 8:30 am – 3:00 pm at SFU, Surrey Campus.
We have limited space for full classes and so you will need to register now. The cost is just $20 for you, a second chaperone (required) and up to 30 secondary students. Yes, for all of you! This won’t include lunch but it will provide a day of informative and interesting dialogue.
To start the morning your students will participate in one of two professionally facilitated workshops:
Following the workshops we’re holding a special Youth Panel, moderated by Susan Lambert, Past President of the BCTF, where space will be reserved for you and your students. The Panel will include up to five young speakers who will each address the impact of racism on their lives.
From that, you and your students will move on to our keynote speaker, Dr. Izzeldin Abuelaish, the “Gaza Doctor,” author of I Shall Not Hate and Founder of Daughters for Life Foundation.
