This is a reminder about Amnesty International USA's Educators Institute on Stopping Violence Against Women. CURRICULUM FOR CHANGE: AN EDUCATOR INSTITUTE FOR STOPPING VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN Presented by Amnesty International USA's Western Region Human Rights Educators Network Join concerned educators for an institute to explore ending violence against women. During this four-day event, participants will share experiences, move toward broader understanding, and work together in finding solutions to this complex issue. >From Wednesday, July 21st through Saturday, July 24th at Seattle University in Seattle, Washington, come together with teachers, students and community members for presentations, workshops and fieldwork. Participants will examine the roles we can play as educators in ending violence against women. How do we begin a dialogue about violence against women? What challenges have we faced and how can we build upon our knowledge of those experiences? The Instutute will provide opportunities to join others in seeking, sharing and making sene of what we know about violence against women. The cost for the institute itself is only $125, if you register by June 15th. Three units of course credit (continuing ed) available for $105. Academic (degree applicable) course credit will also be available upon request. Information about events and speakers is available at the website, which is www.amnestyusa.org/svawinstitute/.
