The CECC is the "Educators of Color" branch of the Cambridge Teachers Union (CEA). In their newsletters, they talk about how, for example, "This school year has been an extremely difficult one for educators and students of color across the country and in Cambridge specifically. Our district has wrestled with the ways that white supremacy and racism shape our system from the composition and actions of the School Committee, to the hostile work environment for educators of color, to the micro- (interpersonal) and macro- (systemic) aggressions that shape our Black and brown students’ daily experiences of school, and the structures that elevate some voices while muting others." And they recommend videos about "Woke Kindergarten," in which 5-yr-olds can learn proper pronoun usage.
