Montessori for Social Justice 2019 Conference

"Decolonizing the Human Potential"

Pre-conference Retreat: Thursday, June 20

Conference: Friday June 21 through Sunday June 23

The MSJ Conference affords unique affinity work in the Montessori community by convening  a collaborative, national forum of Montessorians from public, private and non-profit schools to come together to imagine what Social Justice, liberatory educational practice, and accountability looks like in Montessori sectors. 

Conference participants will have plenty of time for networking, sharing and learning while on the beautiful Lewis & Clark campus. As an exciting additional benefit of attending the conference, all attendees will receive the book Speaking for Ourselves, a $30 value. 

The Pre-Conference Retreat offers two all-day sessions: "Montessorians of the Global Majority," and "De-Centering Whiteness."

The main conference offers a large number of workshops, panels and presentations.
