About the Event
We would like to welcome our current Teach For America corps members and regional alumni in Nashville and Chattanooga for a community conversation hosted by Executive Director, Ben Schumacher.
At Teach For America Nashville-Chattanooga, we have been reflecting on how we can into our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Our collective leadership efforts sit at the nexus of a global and unpredictable pandemic that is taking its disproportionate toll on students and families of color, economic volatility, social unrest and fury at the killings of Black people by police, and a polarizing presidential election. We will look back at this era decades on and ask of ourselves, “Did we do all we could to stand for justice during this time?”
One way we will characterize that answer will be in how we took action to more fully live into our commitments to diversity, equity, and inclusiveness so that our students, families, and the full TFA network, especially our Black, Indigenous, and network members of color, feel like they can thrive, belong, and lead in the long-term effort to pursue educational equity.
We still have so much more to do, and we know it will take all of us, working together toward an equitable and just society that starts with our role in education and our partnership with our TFA network.
We hope you will join us for this conversation.
