NEA Tele-Town Hall: Ensuring Equity and Racial Justice in Reopening School Buildings

Students in classroom.Join your NEA colleagues from around the country this Thursday, June 18 for an engaging conversation to ensure that, as we reopen public school buildings, opportunities for students exist in equitable and just schools.

RSVP to join the tele-town hall from 5-6 p.m. EDT on Thursday. 

Moderated by Jesse Holland, CSPAN Washington Journal Host and award-winning reporter, this event will feature conversation with NEA Vice President Becky Pringle and NAACP President and CEO Derrick Johnson.

During the conversation, participants will engage in a powerful discussion around the impacts of this pandemic crisis on schools and communities, particularly historically marginalized Black communities. As schools and districts make plans to return to in-person learning, equity and racial justice must be driving factors in decisions being made.
