Annual Conference


2017 Equity and Engagement Conference

 True to our mission, our annual Equity and Engagement Conference is one of the ways we build community capacity to engage and support diverse students and families and how we give back to the community.

This year, 25 school districts from as far as Spokane, Rochester, Valley, Blaine, Pasco and Vancouver, WA and 26 organizations and public institutions were represented at the conference. Nearly 100 parents and children also attended the event along with exhibitors and inspiring speakers like Erin Jones, Dr. Veronica Velez, Representative Lillian Ortiz-Self and Dr. Karen Mapp among others.

The conference showcased the knowledge  and experience of our Board members and partners as workshop presenters and the leadership of graduates of the Parent Leadership Training Institute. Everywhere we looked, we saw our own PLTI parents leading, registering participants, supporting, proctoring in classrooms, caring for children, speaking in the panel and fully immersed in learning about Equity and Engagement.
