Conference Theme

This year’s theme is “Revising 15 years of TXNAME: Future Aspirations, Present Successes, Past 
Achievements.” As we join NAME’s anniversary celebration, TXNAME is soliciting for conference proposals that focus on the reflective and responsible actions and advocacy that is promoted through the varied layers presented in best practice pedagogy, community engagement, and the shared understanding gained from collaborative activities. Meaning, actions grounded in not only research and praxis, but steeped in grassroots organizations, community, and collaborations and partnerships stakeholders and social advocacy. Research is encouraged from scholars, community leaders, teachers, and students. We will highlight the community engagement and partnerships for the purpose of better serving the diverse needs of students, families, caregivers, community activists, and advocates.

While highlighting the multicultural practices throughout the State of Texas and Region 5, this year’s conference will also profile the community, conversations, and collaborations that support education. Through our conference proceedings, stakeholders (students, educators, agency workers, policy-makers, families, community members) will share their work on closing the academic achievement gap for marginalized students, and shared strategies to empower students, families, and communities to become effective advocates for education and ultimately the betterment of society.
