We hope this message finds you and your families safe, healthy and in good spirits.  As we continue to support members, students and our communities during this crisis , your health and safety continue to be our top priority and the driving force for decision-making as we monitor the situation daily.

Given current actions being taken by states and municipalities, as well as wanting to be sensitive to all the difficult choices and decisions in front of us all, we are postponing  the launch of the Conference on Racial and Social Justice (CRSJ) registration until April 20th. We are hopeful that within the next 3 weeks, we will have a better sense about what lies ahead and the feasibility of continuing forward with the Conference.

At that time, we will share relevant details and information.  If you have any questions or concerns regarding registration please email  All other inquiries or concerns should be sent to  Conference on Racial and Social Justice Team, at

NEA Human and Civil Rights Awards

In similar fashion, the organization is studying the feasibility of hosting our annual awards gala. Tickets sales for the awards will be postponed until a later date. States will be notified immediately when a decision has been made in this regard. Should you have any questions related to the NEA Human and Civil Rights Awards, please email

Thank you for your ongoing advocacy and leadership on behalf of our members and students during this time.   


In unity,
