Dear Colleagues, Partners, and Friends,
On behalf of SERC and the SERC Foundation, we wish to extend our deepest gratitude for your participation in “Dismantling Systemic Racism: 2016 Conference on Race, Education & Success.” Your presence was critically important to the cause of ensuring access to an equitable education for all of Connecticut’s students.
We encourage you to share our conversation with your schools, neighbors, and communities. Visit http://ctserc.net/raceined or scroll below for the story of the conference as shared on social media that day. Please continue to use the conference hashtag, #RaceInEd, to post your perspectives and strategies for dismantling the system of racism that is the biggest threat to the potential of all of our children and our communities.
So while SERC’s mission has always been about equity, our work with you may be just beginning. We could not be more excited to have you as a partner and look forward to reaching out again soon. Thank you for all that you do to support equity and success in education.
