Education and Labor Collaborative Forum

Please join us at The Education and Labor Collaborative Forum Friday and Saturday, March 28-29, 2008 at the UFT headquarters in New York City.

There are no fees to attend.

We believe that educators, in collaboration with unions and community organizations, can change the cultural climate that denigrates poor and working families and help pave a path towards a more equitable society. Join us as we begin this conversation.

The forum will open with a kick-off party Friday, followed by a panel discussion. Saturday will include breakfast social, panel discussion, and workshops. You may register for either day or both.
