AFTOC Conference 2018

The Alhadeff Future Teachers of Color is proud to present our annual AFTOC Conference 

March 3rd, 2018 at the Elson S. Floyd Cultural Center 


Our Keynote Speaker this year is Kevan Chandler.

Kevan, despite having a physical disability caused by Muscular Dystrophy, set out to live his dream of traveling Europe. 

Today, Kevan and his friends continue the journey by encouraging others to step out, find adventure, and continue breaking barriers for people with disabilities.

“Houseless Testimonios of Survival & Resistance”

Please join the Alhadeff Future Teachers of Color in a free workshop: “My Story is the Only Thing I Own: Houseless’ Testimonios of Survival & Resistance” on October 19 from 1:00-2:00 p.m. in EdAd 212.

This workshop will be facilitated by Nancy Carvajal Medina, a doctoral candidate in Cultural Studies and Social Thought in Education.

Workshop Information:

What are the stories of unstably housed people in rural areas? What do we know about rural homelessness? What actions can we take to support community members who experience housing instability?

In this session we will listen to a snapshot of one houseless’ testimonio and will share our insights about what it entails experiencing housing instability. Bring your whole self (mindbodyspirit) to enter into a houseless’ world.

WSU students are highly encouraged to attend. Faculty, staff, and community members are also welcome.
