WE STAND WITH YOU.
SEE YOU IN 2021
JUNE 4, 2020
The organizers of EDxEDNYC stand behind the educators, students and citizens across the nation — and the world — who are bravely standing up to be heard! Black Lives Matter. Systems, beliefs, policies and practices must change, and as educators we are on the frontlines of this work.
Since 2015, we have been able to call this day on the NYC DOE calendar “EDxED Day,” but unfortunately this year it was not to be. EDxEDNYC has always sought to bring educators together for challenging conversations and often practice-shifting keynotes. With everything that educators and students are facing right now, it pains us to not be together today as a community, moving this work forward. In lieu of this year’s conference sessions, we have collected some inspiring, brilliant and much-needed talks from dynamic black educators and system shakers. This is merely a starter list. There are so many great resources out there, and we encourage educators to keep sharing materials widely.
This is tiring work and trying times. Care for yourselves and others, and keep trying to drive the change that so many are fighting for. Read up, follow new voices on social media that challenge and advance your thinking and create plans of action for advancing the work in your community. As EDxEDNYC has always said: There is enormous power in educators working together.
Be well, keep fighting and we can’t wait to see you next year.
