Our 2019 conference was profiled in MontessoriPublic's Fall 2019 issue. If you haven't seen it yet, please read and share with your communities! Here is an excerpt from the article. 

There were many “firsts” during the Portland conference! MSJ and Embracing Equity co-hosted an evening showcase event on Friday, June 21st called, “Speaking for Ourselves,” to promote the collaborative publication of the same title. The event showcased a select number of Montessorians who published poetry and other reflection pieces to read from the book to a live audience. Each conference attendee was able to receive the book as part of their registration. In addition to the readings, there was a special dance performance choreographed by dance artist, Mr. Bobby Fouther and his dance troupe, Big Foot Dreams, as well as a special greeting from Oregon Montessori Association’s Executive Director, Dalia Avello.
