ISTA Racial and Social Justice Work
ISTA has a vision for every student. We know that institutional and structural racism are barriers to achieving our vision. We will leverage the power and collective voice of our members to end the systemic patterns of racial inequity and injustice that affect our Association, schools, students and education communities.
We are committed to supporting educators of color by building and strengthening relationships, implementing racial justice training, improving professional development opportunities and advancing efforts to recruit and retain more educators of color.
