Invitation for the Supporting Black Students with Disabilities Virtual Roundtable

The White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for African Americans (WHIEEAA) housed at the U.S. Department of Education (ED) invites you to attend the upcoming virtual roundtable titled Reimagining Opportunities for African American Students with Disabilities on Tuesday, July 28, 2020. The event is scheduled for 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. EST.

WHIEEAA established the African American Education (AfAmEd) Connector Roundtable Series in June 2020 to address gaps and opportunities for African Americans students and families, and to highlight programs, policies, and practices that accelerate the learning and development of Black students of all ages. The topic for this roundtable is Reimagining Opportunities for African American Students with Disabilities. In commemoration of the anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), WHIEEAA would like to highlight the importance of meaningfully supporting African American students with disabilities for academic success.

This discussion, moderated by newly appointed Executive Director Terris Todd, will enable participants to have access to information, resources, best and promising practices from ED, other federal agencies, and the field. Register today.
