It's that time again! We are opening the application for our free leadership and political training program!
People of color represent about 40 percent of the population and 50 percent of students. While the Latino and Asian-American teacher workforce is growing, the share of Native American and Black teachers in the workforce is actually in decline. We need to help more educators of color stay in the classroom.
In the summer of 2022, the Leaders of Color program is providing a series of three workshops that are focused on building effective political campaigns. The sessions, featuring Leaders of Color staff who are seasoned political operatives, are designed to introduce best practices for emerging political leaders.
In New York, several Leaders of Color have been appointed to local office and are running for election in June 2022.
Our monthly newsletter provides a snapshot of our work to build Black and Latino civic engagement and political power in our communities.
