    On Wednesday, February 28 at 8:30 p.m. ET, NLGJA x TJA's book club will gather to discuss "Gender Queer" by Maia Kobabe, an "immensely cathartic autobiography" that follows Kobabe's journey of self-discovery and identity. The award-winning graphic novel has been named one of the most widely-banned books in America.

    What's TJA up to?

    The TJA is planning a panel on covering policies and bills related to trans students in the U.S. public schools. TJA president Kae Petrin will be coordinating everything.

    We'll also be hosting a small meetup for TJA members and friends. 

    More about the event

    The 77th EWA National Seminar comes after monumental U.S. Supreme Court decisions on race-conscious college admissions and student debt; growing parents’ rights movements; intensifying Gen-Z voting power and increasingly fraught battles over curricula and books.

    Many believe education issues could decide the 2024 election. The Education Writers Association plans to use this pivotal moment in time to better prepare its members for what’s to come.

    As more than 40 states introduce bills or pass laws limiting how teachers address racism or sexism, amid growing public concern about attacks on racial and gender progress, EWA will gather stakeholders in a prime location. The National Seminar will take place May 29-June 1, 2024 in Las Vegas – a city in a swing state and a convention destination known for unique experiences.

    Leading policymakers, experts and other speakers will share their perspectives with journalist, community, and student members on the most pressing education issues as the election year heats up. Attend sessions, build community and dine at The Mirage Hotel and Casino, located on the iconic Las Vegas Strip.

    Scholarships will be awarded to qualified journalists and students. All members will get vital training and opportunities like no other in a top sports and entertainment hub. Save the date for the 2024 event!
