Here is an important message from our President

Like most Americans, I have been heartbroken and angry over the events of the last several days. On behalf of the twelve thousand members of the Essex County Education Association I would like to express solidarity with our black students and their families who I know are hurting right now.

The ECEA and its members work every day to fight for equity in funding, facilities, opportunities, and educational outcomes for our black students. It is not easy work as institutional racism and poverty are powerful opponents. Today, I reaffirm our commitment to advance the causes of racial and social justice in our classrooms, schools, and communities.

We look forward to the day when our communities and country live up to the promise of equality. Until then, know that we stand with the people who are hurting and with those who are working toward a more perfect union, whether they be leaders of government, law enforcement, faith, or education.
