We challenge systems of oppression by advocating for culturally competent educational practices. Our work focuses on areas that have the potential to achieve the greatest amount of positive change for students in the short-term.
Our mission is to challenge systems of oppression by advocating for culturally competent educational practices in Waterbury.
We believe the most effective way to triumph over systemic forms of oppression is to have an educational system that serves the historically underserved and underrepresented.
We advocate for an educational system that is positioned to provide culturally competent school professionals and curriculum, human services, and disciplinary policies, which combat: generational poverty, achievement gaps, implicit and explicit biases towards race, ethnicity and gender.
Who We Are
RACCE is an organization that is filled with people from all different walks of life who want to foster change in Waterbury's Public School system. Together we are activists, advocates, and agitators on the front lines fighting for a better present and future.
