The MTA ETHNIC MINORITY AFFAIRS COMMITTEE invites ALL MTA MEMBERS to participate in forums during March to discuss issues concerning race, ethnicity and public education, such as:
- What are the strategies educators can use to initiate conversations in their schools and communities?
- What should the MTA do as an association to broaden understanding about race and ethnicity?
- How can MTA members make classrooms and school communities that are safe spaces for all students and their families?
The EMAC Rap at the 2016 Summer Conference initiated dialogue about these issues and the December 2016 EMAC Conference deepened the conversation. Now YOU can take part in furthering the exchange of ideas and formulating next steps.
