CTAUN Conference:
“Advancing Social Justice: The Role of Educators”

AAUW encourages our members to attend CTAUN at the United Nations scheduled for Friday, January 18, 2013 from 9:30 to 4 in New York City. 

Registration Fee: $65
Student Fee - ID required: $40
The Committee on Teaching About the United Nations (CTAUN) will examine the social justice issues of Human Trafficking and Economic Inequality.
Distinguished speakers from the United Nations and International NGOs will provide insight and information helping to empower you with increased awareness.

I believe that education is the civil rights issue of our generation. And if you care about promoting opportunity and reducing inequality, the classroom is the place to start. Great teaching is about so much more than education; it is a daily fight for social justice.
