Why: This year’s theme is both a reminder and a call to action. Reflect: Together, Covid-19 and the racial calculus have created the most profound learning moment of most of our lives. In the face of adversity, there is no learning from mistakes or building success without reflection. Transform: For many children, young people and families, normality was insufficient. Creating a new normal that eliminates inequalities of access and opportunity requires a major transformation of our practices, partnerships and systems. To go up: To soar is to fly or rise high. If we continually reflect and transform together, our students, families, educators, and communities will soar, reach new heights, and achieve better results.

After: Since 1964, IEL has developed leaders who disrupt generational poverty and break down systemic barriers of race, class and disability, in order to achieve greater equity for all. With national policy expertise and a deep network of community-level relationships, IEL works collaboratively to increase access to education and work opportunities, so that all children and families can create the life they want. want to live.
