Join Chancellor Porter at New York Urban League's Virtual Town Hall, Wednesday, April 7, 2021

Hello and Good Afternoon Parent Leaders
FYI and Please share!
New York Urban League Virtual Town Hall “State of Black New York: Bridging the Digital Divide”  will Address Challenges and  Solutions for Education and Mental Health, April 7, 6:00pm-7:30pm
During the pandemic, technology has become the great connector.  In areas where broadband is scarce, and equipment is limited, we are challenged to connect members of our communities to educational and social emotional resources.  During this Town Hall, we will discuss how technology is aiding social isolation as well as creating opportunities for remote learning and mental health support.   
The New York Urban League’s State of Black New York Report, the first published in a decade, provides additional information and data that clearly show unacceptable inequality in education, the digital divide, economy, health, civil engagement and criminal justice in New York.

WHEN: Wednesday, April 7, 2021 from 6:00pm-7:30pm
WHY: We are all concerned about the state of education, virtual learning curriculum, insufficient access to the internet and devise, students’ mental health and the widening achievement gap of students in the New York school system as a result of pandemic conditions.  Now is the time to take action to address these challenges.
Please join us!  And encourage your friends, colleagues and social followers to register for this important Town Hall.
