POLICY COMMITTEE

“To promote equity in education”

The purpose of our committee is to create education policies that will foster equitable outcomes for Black children.  


Work with us as we analyze data, review current policy and NYSED law, and ultimately write and submit educational policy that is aligned to BE-U’s seven-point agenda.  Join us as we serve Black educators, influence others, and impact Black children through our work.
