TGA 2016 POSTERClick the image above to download the poster for the event!Teachers for Global Awareness (with members from Greater Essex County District School Board, Windsor Essex Catholic District School Board, Faculty of Education -University of Windsor, Ontario Secondary Schools Teachers Federation & Can-Am Indian Friendship Centre) is proud to present the 10th Annual High School Social Justice Forum- Social Justice Media (R)Evolution on Wednesday February 17, 2016 at the University of Windsor- Ambassador Auditorium and Dillon Hall. 

Our keynote presenter this year is Nancy Pansheshan, a local environmental activist, who has recently garnered a lot of media attention in her fight for the Ojibway Prairie Complex. 

Through a full day of workshops and group discussions, students will learn about social justice issues relating to the theme of Social Justice Media (R)Evolution on topics such as #blacklivesmatter, Saving Ojibway, Because It’s 2016: Feminism & Media, health hazards of social media on teens, politics, and LGBTQ+ and the media.  Students must select four workshops in order of preference from which two will be assigned. Please encourage students to select a variety of workshops so that the school as a whole can participate in all the forum has to offer. The cost for the forum is $5/student which will include a breakfast and lunch (teachers are free).  

As participants in the Annual High School Social Justice Forum, we encourage all students to complete a social justice project at their school.  In preparation for the event’s final activity, students should come to the forum with several ideas for social justice projects.  These could include starting a Students for Global Awareness group, organizing a Diversity Assembly, hosting a fundraising dance, running an awareness/fundraising/outreach campaign (i.e. White Ribbon campaign, World AIDS Day Awareness, Day of Silence), environmental art installations, or any project that touches on topics such as human rights, poverty, health, and the environment.

We are looking forward to sharing our 10th Anniversary with you!
