Statement from Bibi Yasmin Katsev, Executive Director, Texas District Charter Alliance on Black Lives Matter
To our DCA members and friends, we are saddened and angry about the killing of George Floyd and too many others, and about the systemic racism that persists in our state and in our country. We grieve with our Black members, friends and community and commit to learning more and speaking out about racial injustice. We stand united with you: black lives matter. DCA was started by educators coming together to collaborate and share what works in order to put students’ interests before all else. Our work is more important now than ever. We join together in this critical time to demand justice, and to seek change and the dismantling of systemic racism.
