Social Justice Conference

Date/Time

All Day


HWP is proud to be attending the following conference to raise awareness regarding the importance of access to menstrual products in our schools and how this access (or lack of it) impacts learning in adolescence.

“The Power of You: Impacting Social Justice” Conference is focusing on issues and approaches to forward social justice and gain a deeper understanding of how to create a more equitable community.  Chuck Alberts, President of the Lansing Schools Education Association said, “The conference will bring together leading scholars and voices on the topics of gender, race, ethnicity and current event topics shaping our schools, communities and politics.  We don’t want participants to just sit and listen, 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.”

The Conference is open to everyone interested in attending and will run from 5-8 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 2, and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 3.  It will be held at the MEA Headquarters in East Lansing.  Childcare is available.

This conference is jointly sponsored by the Lansing Schools Education Association (LSEA) and MEA.  The cost is $49 for members and $74 for non-members.
