CTA Statement

 Statement of Support

 

"As...educators across California, we have an obligation to act. This is not a time for us to look away. We must grapple with the fact that our schools, our practices, policies...are shaped by inequities, bias and institutional racism.

 

Our black students and educators experience schools, the police and this pandemic very differently than our white students and educators. Saying #BlackLivesMatter isn't enough: we need to actively show it in our work toward anti-racism on a personal, structural and institutional level.

 

We are grieving and we are outraged. Together, we must continue the call for justice and to hold powerful people, organizations and each other accountable. What are you doing to work toward anti-racism every day?"
