Dear Members and Colleagues:
I would like to take a moment and reflect on the troubling issues currently facing each and every one of us. In the midst of fighting the Covid-19 Pandemic we are, yet again, confronted with inequality and injustice that are all too common. I feel that I can speak for all our members in saying “we stand with our fellow brothers and sisters who believe in the continuous fight for equity and justice.” The mass protests that are occurring globally are evidence that people worldwide believe the time is long overdue for permanent change. It has been a call to action and we can no longer wait for others “to do the right thing.” It is our job to teach and show our students, from our example, to learn and practice true leadership, to have their voices heard, and to fight for lasting change. It gives me renewed hope that, together with acknowledgment and true desire, we can and will transform the world.
Danielle M. Clark, CCCEA President
