We were recently awarded a $5,100 CT Cultural Fund Operating Support Grant from CT Humanities (CTH). CT Cultural Fund Operating Support Grants assist organizations as they recover from the pandemic and maintain and grow their ability to serve their community and the public.
The CT Cultural Fund Grant will be used to provide conference programming that includes speakers leading the work in areas of social justice and racial literacy. This grant will also allow us to continue to offer high quality webinars during the year at no cost to ensure equitable access for all CT ELA teachers.
"Since our rebirth in 2017, a foundation of our annual conference has been a commitment to promote the work of keynote speakers of color to build equity and inclusion in all aspects of our classrooms. This generous funding will allow us to continue this work as well as strengthen our outreach." - Cathy Sosnowski, Past President
