Town Hall for #EdJustice:
The Impact of COVID-19 on Latino Students and Educators
Today, Tuesday, May 5th
4:00 p.m. PT
The League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) and the National Education Association (NEA) will be hosting the #EdJustice Town Hall tomorrow with the National Immigration Law Center and the Hope Center for Wellness for a comprehensive discussion on COVID-19 and its impact on Latino students and families.
The virtual town hall will be moderated by María Peña, a journalist and digital reporter at Telemundo News.
The conversation will address virtual learning, strengthening access to school safety nets, mental health resources, and supporting and advocating for our immigrant and undocumented families.
We will also address the conditions under which schools could reopen and what they may look like once students return.
Join us as we come together to discuss ways we are responding to this crisis and working to ensure that our public schools help all students pursue their dreams regardless of where they come from, what they look like, or where they live.
