Black Educator Organizations
Education is a key tool for a more socially just, equitable and liberated society. While schooling has historically reproduced systems of oppression that marginalize Black and Brown children, educators are key change agents in educational systems. Preparing a strong Black teacher-force positively impacts not just Black and Brown children, but all children. The Black Educators Initiative (BEI) aims to do just that.
BMESTL is an organized movement to influence, advocate, connect, and empower. We are committed to creating spaces for people and organizations interested in the recruitment, development, supporting, and mentoring of current and future Black educators.
