Conexión Américas is pleased to invest in the Tennessee NAACP’s statewide efforts to share information about the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).

The TN NAACP pro­pos­es to lever­age their exper­tise and state-wide pres­ence in order to engage their mem­ber­ship, as well as par­ents, com­mu­ni­ty lead­ers, and cler­gy in advo­cat­ing for strong account­abil­i­ty in the ESSA, and appro­pri­ate and equi­table resources for stu­dents in every dis­trict.

The TN NAACP will hold a series of pub­lic events, town-halls, com­mu­ni­ty meet­ings, forums, and media events across the state. The­se pub­lic events will be com­pli­ment­ed by train­ing ses­sions across the state for chap­ter edu­ca­tion lead­ers, as well as par­ents, and com­mu­ni­ty lead­ers in advo­ca­cy around ESSA imple­men­ta­tion.
