The Lansing Schools Education Association (LSEA) and the Michigan Education Association (MEA)announced that they will be hosting: “The Power of You: Impacting Social Justice” Conference being held on November 2 & 3, 2018 at the MEA Headquarters in East Lansing, Michigan.
The featured keynote speakers for this event are Dr. Dorinda Carter Andrews and Dr. Chezare Warren, from Michigan State University’s Department of Education.
Chuck Alberts, the LSEA President, stated “This conference was designed to offer information, education, networking, and aspirations of energizing people into action. We don’t want participants to just sit and listen, similar to most conferences, we want them to be challenged. We hope that people are going to be willing to step outside their comfort zone to acknowledge that we all have different experiences, biases, values, and perceptions which impact our ability to accept and embrace other cultures. Understanding these things will allow us to be more open minded and knowledgeable about our own individual shortcomings.”
The Power of You Conference is open to everyone interested in attending and participating.
