Description:

The 5th conference on Dismantling Systemic Racism, sponsored by the State Education Resource Center (SERC) in collaboration with the SERC Foundation, focuses on ways to promote and develop racial equity in education. This virtual 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.   

This year's conference will feature two keynote speakers in the morning. SERC staff will facilitate discussion groups in the afternoon, when all participants are invited to connect around the common themes of racial equity and social justice. Come share your thoughts, questions, and ideas -- we want to hear your perspective!
