NYCoRE 3rd Annual Conference
Over the past year, our country and the world have witnessed increasingly visible protests against the influence of private pursuit of profit over our public institutions and interests. The annual NYCoRE conference seeks to carry out anti-racist work by addressing these disparities in the context of our education system. The Dignity in Schools Campaign - New York coalition will hold a panel at NYCoRE's 3rd Annual Conference.
