All Children, Our Future: Civil Rights and Education Conference

The All Children, Our Future: Civil Rights and Education Conference brings together a diverse group of national, state, and local advocates who will spend the day learning and sharing about critical areas of concern and interest for the civil rights community in education, discussing strategies for action, and leaving ready to act individually and collectively to ensure every child equal educational opportunity and the chance to fulfill their dreams freed from historical barriers and discrimination. We will draw on more than 200 years of struggle and strength and prepare ourselves for the challenges of our current moment in the service of our communities.

The All Children, Our Future: Civil Rights and Education Conference will feature keynote speaker Catherine Lhamon, Chair of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights and former Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights at the U.S. Department of Education.
