The 4th annual conference on Dismantling Systemic Racism, sponsored by the State Education Resource Center (SERC) in collaboration with the SERC Foundation, focuses on ways to support, promote, and develop racial equity in education. The full-day conference supports educators, families, and community leaders who seek to confront racist structures and practices to better serve Connecticut’s students and their families, through advocacy and the development, implementation, and sustainability of innovative, culturally relevant programming.
Systemic racism impedes our students’ outcomes and limits opportunities for success in academics, social development, health, and family engagement. The conference features dynamic, thought-provoking presentations that will address possible ways to dismantle systemic racism and create positive change for our students.
