FIGHTING FOR OUR COMMUNITY

Upcoming Community Forum: "Males of Color"

It's time to have a conversation that's long overdue in our community.

The Bridgeport Board of Education is hosting a community forum titled "Males of Color" on Wednesday, June 14, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Cesar Batalla School, 606 Howard Ave., Bridgeport.

Males of Color flier.

A committee set up by the school board has been working together for two years now, exploring ways to help male students of color in the district do better in school. Now the committee will take its plans to the community to get their ideas.

School Superintendent Aresta Johnson and Dr. Edward Joyner, a former New Haven educator who spent most of his career at the Yale Child Study Center before directing the of master of arts in education program at Sacred Heart University, will be the guest speakers at this event.

Refreshments will be served and childcare is available. Please share this event with your friends on Facebook.
