A RADICAL Alternative on the MTS PD Day - Friday, October 20

We, the Manitoba Educators for Social Justice (MESJ), are very excited to present our fourth annual WISE conference (Workshops in Sustainability & Equality). Teachers, teacher candidates, educational assistants, administrators, and all other educators are welcome to attend. We encourage all educators, regardless of grade level or subject area, who have a passion for social justice to join us. This year's theme is Solidarity against Austerity.

Over the past year, many changes to the public sector have significant implications on our jobs as educators. The goal of WISE this year is to build solidarity with fellow educators but also to other members of the community who are negatively impacted by recent cuts and changes to funding structures.
