A Call for a Collective Action to Develop Awareness: Equity & Social Justice in Mathematics Education
A new school year brings new beginnings and  I am excited to share with you that this fall NCSM will join several other national mathematics education organizations to deepen our commitment to equity and social justice. Through a collective effort, organizations are dedicating the year to  building our collective knowledge and understanding of topics and issues related to Equity and Social Justice in Mathematics Education.  
I invite all NCSM members to join us in this journey as we continue our work to make mathematics more meaningful, relevant, and accessible for all students. You can get involved through:
  1. Monthly readings
  2. Quarterly webinars
  3. Face-to-Face informal conversations.
More details about the readings and all activities will be sent out via email within the next two weeks.
