Black Resistance in Public Education—Panel discussion/Fireside Chat

ETT invites its members and other educators and members of the community to join this exciting early evening event.

The past few years have redefined what it means to reckon with our past, advocate for better in our present and expand the possibilities for our future. In 2020, the pandemic and summer uprising following attacks against Black people rapidly transformed our lives, exposed the injustices that the powerful few have unleashed since our founding, and opened up the possibility for a radical realignment in our politics in a pivotal election year.  Now, advocates have the opportunity to focus public attention on creating a country where everyone is safe and free, with a care system and economy that works for all of us, no exceptions.

Join ETT as it hosts these crucially important day and evening events on February 21.
