The NEA will use existing resources by utilizing the Racial Justice Education program to provide quality anti-racist, anti-biased culturally competent virtual professional development opportunities. To continue to build upon already existing work by identifying regional, state, leaders, and volunteers or whomever the Committee deems to expand learning to facilitate and train the trainer model using an interactive virtual curriculum to build capacity in members at the state and local level.

Rationale/Background

It is imperative that NEA members, staff, and our students recognize biased actions and policies in districts, schools, and classrooms and that micro-aggressions, cultural ignorance, stereotyping, and toxic interactions must be confronted in all our work.
