The 2017 Curriculum Fair Registration is OPEN! ALL are welcome!, and we ask for a $5-10 donation at the door.

TSJ is a 100% volunteer organization that turns 20 next year! Every Curriculum Fair is organized by ALL OF US together!

Click HERE to register!! And you can volunteer on the registration form. See you NOVEMBER 18th!

We have finalized our workshops and are quite excited about them--from early childhood to adult education; from fighting the attack on Black teachers to supporting white teachers to fight racism; from a youth space to cultural spaces in multiple languages; from fighting Islamophobia and the new cop academy, to learning about the Puerto Rican debt crisis and the new, mandated (in CPS) Burge-torture-victims reparations curriculum--these are some powerful workshops that will help us all TEACH-LEARN-ORGANIZE in this moment!

You do not need to sign up for specific workshops ahead, but you DO need to register for the CF if you haven't already!
