Community Outreach CTA’s Community Outreach Department provides services statewide to local chapters, UniServ units and Service Center Councils in support of communi- ty engagement projects. The goal is to build strong, collaborative re- lationships between communities and local chapters in each of the four CTA regions. These efforts focus on developing projects and partnerships in support of public schools and their surrounding communities. CTA has collaborated with the Equal Justice Society studying the intersection of unconscious bias and social justice to assess racial bi- as in the classroom and school en- vironment and its impact on stu- dent achievement. Community Outreach has also recently part- nered with the National Education Association on a Public Engage- ment Project (PEP). The project is a community conversation that helps parents and ordinary citizens, teachers, education support profes- sionals, seniors, elected officials, businesspeople and activists meet to talk about how all students can succeed in school. An ongoing PEP project in Davis, California has had wide participation from its com- munity to address the needs of those children caught in the achievement gap.
