Monday, February 22, 2021

The National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Chattanooga Chapter, Inc. will present a community conversation, “Perils of the Pandemic on the Education System” live on its Facebook page this Thursday from 6-7:30 p.m.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has profound and negative implications on the education of our youth throughout the country, and these effects are even more staggering for black, brown and other marginalized youth and their families who were already combating disparities before the on-set of the virus in our world,” stated Vanessa Jackson, NCBW’s Community Involvement Committee chair. “The NCBW is hosting this informative session from a balanced format to include administrators, consultants, teachers, parents and students to address questions and obtain further insights on the issues, as well as to extend a community ‘call to action’ in support of educators, students and their families during and in preparation for the aftermath of this health and education crisis.

"Please join the women of NCBW and hear from our guest speakers who deal with this educational crisis, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the effect it has on our education system."

The workshop will be held via Facebook Live at www.facebook.com/NCBWChattanooga.
