All MTA members are invited to this year’s Ethnic Minority Affairs Committee (EMAC) 35th Anniversary Conference. Standing on a Great Foundation is the theme of this year’s conference, which begins Friday, December 5th.

New this year is a free interactive workshop, The Skin that We Speak: Exploring Culture and Language in the Classroom and Beyond, presented by Beau Stubblefield-Tave, a principal in the Center for Cultural Fluency. This “Bridge” workshop links the Just For New Teachers (JFNT) 13th Annual Conference to the EMAC Conference.
This year’s special honoree is Louise Gaskins, who was instrumental in establishing MTA’s Minority Affairs Committee — the forerunner of EMAC — as well as the Human and Civil Rights Council and MTA’s Minority Involvement Plan. Over the years, Gaskins became a leading spokesperson for minority affairs at the MTA, and she is still active today.
This will be a memorable 35th anniversary celebration!
