This conference will capture the essence in CTA’s Mission Statement: to ensure that the dignity and civil rights of all children and youth are protected and to secure a more equitable and democratic society.
Unique this year, the conference will be virtual. CTA members will have access to dynamic speakers and interactive workshops live to provide them with a greater understanding of the issues of diversity, equity and social justice. Content will also be recorded so that, later, attendees may watch content they couldn’t attend live.
The theme for 2021 will be Truth, Healing, Action. Our workshop sessions will cover those topics through the lens of the following categories:
A. Socio Economic Justice
B. Equity in Special Education
C. Equity Lens in Schools
D. Racial Justice
E. LGBTQ+ Movement
Platform Name: Webex
- We highly recommend that you download and install the Webex Meetings app in advance.
- You’ll need a device with speakers or a headphone connection.
- We recommend you use a computer rather than a mobile device to take full advantage of the Q&A and polling features.
