You helped make the NCSD conference a success!
Nearly 250 educators, parents, students, community members, policymakers, and advocates joined us last week for Advancing the Legacy of Mendez and Brown. Please make sure to share what you learned with your colleagues and friends who were not able to attend. 
  • Please check our website in a few weeks, as we will be posting materials (handouts, video clips, etc.) from the conference as they become available.   
  • If you are looking for specific publications you saw on our publications tables, please email us and we'll try to direct you to an online version (we're working on assembling these and getting them posted in one place).

Keep the conversation going!

Here are some ways you can do that:
  • Comment on the NY Times forum on school integration (see below). 
  • Stay in touch with the people you met at the conference. Consider collaborating with them!!
  • Send your One Nation Indivisible postcard to a teacher, principal, superintendent, government official, legislator, parent, or friend and tell them why school integration is important to you (or, tell them that you support the work they are doing to support integration). If you need more postcards, let us know.
  • Write a letter or opinion article to your local newspaper, board of education, or state department of education about the importance of integration.
  • Host an integration-related event in your local community, and consider asking NCSD members (including our Research Advisory Panel members) to participate. 
  • Share NCSD's research briefs with educators, school board members, organizers, etc. in your community. 
  • Keep NCSD informed about what's going on in your local community.
  • Join NCSD's Facebook page.

School integration in the news...

As you may know, The New York Times has been running a series of articles about segregation and integration in American schools. You can find them here:  

We are excited to see a conversation about these issues happening, but want to make it clear that there IS a strong pro-integration community working to create more inclusive, equitable, high-quality educational opportunities for young people across the nation. Please continue to follow this news series, and consider sharing your perspectives.
