On March 8th at noon, the Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities will be hosting its “Forum on Educational Access and Racial Justice“ to discuss how equal access to quality schooling can aid in our mission of eliminating discrimination in the state. It will be an opportunity to discuss the challenges the state continues to have in achieving that goal with experts in the fields of racial justice and education, legislators and public servants, and engaged citizens.
Panelists for the event include Kenneth Anthony from Connecticut Afterschool Network, Shellye Davis from the American Federation of Teachers, Patrice McCarthy from the Connecticut Board of Education, and Ansari Muhammad from the NAACP. Afterwards there will be an opportunity for the general audience to discuss the panelists’ points to come to a understanding of how to best approach this issue. We look forward to seeing you there!
