In San Francisco, this summer, groups of educators took on the task of identifying the most critical issues in education today, labored over practical, expert solutions, and presented them in an outstanding show of solidarity and active commitment to positive change. What began there is being continued in New York, then Santa Fe, San Francisco, Denver, and Seattle. You are invited to be part of it.

The One Voice International Conference and Forum for Educators in San Francisco was unlike any other such event that in its DNA seemed embedded the blueprint for action, interaction, activism, and advocacy. The attendees were impassioned and invested in the event’s outcomes, perhaps the most important one of which was the presentations by ELC (Education Leadership Council) facilitators. The excellent, thought provoking results of the ELC brainstorming sessions were dynamic, incredibly informative and confirmed the philosophy of the organization: Educators are the (SMEs) subject matter experts when it comes to improving learning and teaching, and when asked can provide the answers to the important questions. Based on the great success of the ELC meetings, and the important directives they yielded, it has been decided that they will be a part of all future One Voice events. What started in San Francisco is on its way across the country and around the world. We hope you will join us and further this important work by contributing your thoughts, your experience, your ideas, and your VOICE! The One Voice NorthEast Regional Conference and Forum is your chance to step up, unite with your peers, share your work, and raise your voice for positive change in education. We hope to see you there!
