Have you noticed delegates wearing “SJA” buttons on the convention center floor?

If so, you’ve seen an ambassador for NYSUT’S newly created Social Justice Academy, an intensive two-part training designed to provide locals with the tools and resources they need to create a social justice committee from scratch, or to improve an existing one.

The goal is to educate members on social justice issues, inspire them to advocate for change and promote social justice initiatives.

The inaugural program launches in March of 2023 and continues with a four-day program in August.

For more information, email socialjustice@nysut.org.
