Do you know what housing discrimination looks like? The Connecticut Fair Housing Center is a great resource for learning about your housing rights. They can also help if you think you have been a victim of housing discrimination.
I recently joined national leaders on education at the National Summit on Teacher Diversity in Washington, D.C. held by the U.S. Department of Education. The Summit highlights the need for more teachers of color in schools across the country.
As in most states, teachers of color are underrepresented in Connecticut. This has a real impact on educational outcomes. Research has shown that a diverse teaching workforce that reflects the students they serve improves outcomes and inspires students of color to purse higher education.
