Washington, District of Columbia 20003
United StatesJoin us in Washington, DC January 25-27 for a weekend of trainings, sharing and collaboration!
Starting up a group? Had a group for a couple years and looking for new ideas? Trying to bring more fair trade products on campus? Want to make sure students know whats behind the label? Struggling to incorporate anti-oppression into your organizing? Come share the challenges and successes you've faced on your campuses!
This conference is all about YOU - learning more about the core fair trade issues, discovering your strengths and weaknesses as an organizer and tapping into amazing resources to make your campaigns stronger.
We will be able to provide a limited amount of free housing via local students couches and floors, so you'd need to bring a sleeping bag. This housing is available on a first-come first-serve basis, so register early!
The conference venue has not yet been finalized (we hope to have that to you by Dec 1) - but will be definitely be public transport accessible (near a metro stop). I will post information on that as soon as we get a confirmation! I've also contacted several hotels in the area about group rates and will post that information soon. They will probably be somewhere between $80 - $120/per night/per room. You can also find similar deals online yourself at Kayak.com and Sidestep.com under their "hotels" search. These are also great sites for finding cheap airfare!
