The Problem of School Segregation & What We Can do About it

Friday, September 24, 2021

September 24 is the anniversary of the day federal troops were deployed to integrate Little Rock High School.
Here in New Jersey, 64 years later, we have the shameful distinction of being more segregated by race and class than almost any state of the former confederacy.

Why is this? is it accidental, coincidence? Is it by choice or just the result of a segregated residential market.

Why should we care? What's the harm? And how does it affect me, my family and my community?

What can be done? Are there solutions? What are they and what can I do?






The conference on September 24 will explore all of these questions with facts, data, history and analysis from experts, practitioners and constituency leaders. And it and it will present a series of proposals for legislative action that can powerfully move us in a different direction in New Jersey.

The event will go from 10:00 to 3:00 PM. Lunch will be included. There is a fee of $75 to cover costs including meals. Discounts are available for members of affiliated organizations, sponsors and students. 


Racial segregation in schools is a structure and a system made by people that can be dismantled by people. It is more than just residential segregation and it harms more than just those who are segregated.

It has devastating consequences for the segregated, but it harms us all in a myriad of profound ways, politically, economically and morally,
