Called Seminar 2020 Examines Educational Equity
Held on Zoom November 30-December 3
For Immediate Release
Church and Society will host its fifth annual Called Seminar, “Towards Educational Equity: Investing in the Beloved Community” from November 30- December 3, 2020.
Going back to school in the COVID-19 pandemic has created challenges for students, teachers, and parents. These challenges have been compounded by the disproportionate availability and access to resources, highlighting the inequities of our education system. Unfortunately, these inequities are not unique to COVID-19, and like other societal inequities magnified by COVID-19, existed prior to the pandemic.
This four-day series of seminars will feature discussions with experts on what an equitable education system for all can truly look like. The seminar will equip participants with tools and resources to continue the work of advocacy towards educational equity.
All sessions will be held on Zoom. Registration is free and open to all.
Register for each session here. Advance registration is required for all events.
Closed captions and ASL interpretation will be available for Nov 30 and Dec 1 webinars. For December 2 and 3 events, it will be available upon request.
Participants will also have an option to hold virtual meetings with their Congressional offices on December 3. To participate in this and the team building session on December 2, please register by November 11.
Webinars on November 30 & December 1 will be recorded. Register by the date of the webinar to receive the links and additional resources.
