America is battling dual pandemics, COVID and racism. This battle has further exposed the previous existing racial disparities in education. Our children, families, and educators deserve better.

She will offer a free virtual presentation on Thursday, Feb. 25 at 2 p.m.

Bullock’s presentation will be called “We can’t wait! Equity now!” Following the presentation, public school teachers will be meeting in small groups online with presenters/mentors on several topics related to race, class, LGBTQ students, nationality and religion as it can be discussed in school.
