Town Hall: Racial Justice and Covid Relief Funding For Our Schools


Join us tonight for an important Town Hall event: Racial Justice and COVID Relief Funding For Schools.

This will be a virtual space where we will discuss and strategize about the role Waterbury students and parents will play as advocates in determining how the $89 million in funding from the American Rescue Plan is used in a manner that reflects our values, acknowledges our students lived experiences, and allocates funding to strategically address their wants and needs.

It is our belief that COVID relief funds should be invested directly into students, educators, staff, and programming, not property, which should be maintained and upgraded by a capital improvement plan. We must use COVID relief funding in ways that directly address the rampant inequality that our schools perpetuate year in and year out.
