Core Steering Committee (CSC)
The CSC provides direction and structure to the Coalition and plans its activities. Its members are a majority educators of color. We are appreciative of the time that all CSC members volunteer to keep the Coalition viable and help it grow. The Coalition has no paid full-time or part-time staff as non-profit collective with a small budget from grants and donations. As a coalition of individuals, organizations and institutions, it is not itself a 501c3 organization.
