Please join the Southeast Comprehensive Center (SECC) on September 4 for the Navigating the Complexities of Equity webinar, which will:
- Give participants a first look at the AIR BLAAC Book (described below);
- Ground equity-related understandings, plans, and actions in local, immediate, and historical realities linked to human and civil rights;
- Provide opportunities for state and local leaders to engage in dialogue aimed at addressing equity issues for school improvement and effective implementation of Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) plans; and
- Move participants to take action for educational equity.
Navigating the Complexities of Equity concludes the SECC Equity in Action Webinar Series. It will feature the AIR BLAAC Book, a compilation of resources developed under the leadership of Taishya Adams, Chair of the AIR Black Latino African American Caribbean (BLAAC) Diaspora Network employee resource group. The AIR BLAAC Book—which was inspired by The Negro Motorist Green Book, a mid-20th century guidebook for African-American travelers written by Victor Hugo Green—was designed to facilitate cultural competence and information sharing in support of educational equity.
During the webinar, AIR BLAAC Diaspora Network (AIR BDN) officers and members—Taishya Adams, AIR BDN Chair; Carolyn Rugamas, AIR BDN Documentarian; Chris Times, AIR BDN Community Supports Liaison; Robyn Madison-Harris, Ed.D.; Beth Howard-Brown, Ed.D., SECC Director; and Tammie Causey-Konaté, Ph.D., SECC Deputy Director—will facilitate a conversation based on excerpts from the AIR BLAAC Book that illuminate key equity issues.
For more information about the webinar, please contact Dr. Causey-Konaté at firstname.lastname@example.org.
