Guatemala Social Justice Travel Program
Saturday June 16th, 5:00 PM to 9:00 PM
2021 NE 75th St., Seattle
In the home of Joe Szwaja, History teacher at Nova and coordinator of this social justice project.
The students are asking for donations to help the ex-refugee community that they have linked up with. All donations will be greatly appreciated!
• Great food, drink and Guatemalan Crafts
• DVD’s and Photos Highlighting our Social Justice Programs
• Music by Nova Students and Local Musicians
• Student Stories about our Magical Social Justice Trip
All proceeds will benefit scholarships and job training for students in the Nuevo Amanecer (New Dawn) Community of repatriated refugees whose members were ravaged by the US backed military violence in the 1980s and 90s.
Nova has linked up with this community for the last five years and ongoing support is vital for these students to continue their education and have a bridge out of extreme poverty. Invest in justice and youth activism!!!

Nova is termed an “Option School” by the Seattle Public School district. I like to call it a progressive alternative to traditional learning. It’s a gem of a school with great teachers and a knowledgeable principal.
With schools like this in Seattle, we don’t need charter schools.

Answer: "Public education is crucial and much better than charters. Charter schools destroy public education."
