Join us in this celebration of truth, diversity, inclusion and belonging!
Discover the possibilities of inclusive education at the NJEA Consortium! Proudly supported by a NEA grant, we're on a mission to redefine curriculum with diversity and representation at the forefront. Situated at the top of Main Street, our Consortium space and Consortium Design Team Ambassadors have curated a series of illuminating workshops. Drag Queen Story Hour makes a grand and fabulous return on Thursday and Friday, and we're putting a spotlight on our talented youth with student features. Plus, in collaboration with BookSmiles, NJEA presents the "Banned on the Run" extravaganza, where over 10,000 books—many of which have been challenged —await to be brought home to classroom libraries.
