Join National Charter Collaborative for a virtual convening
Radial Restart: A Convening for Charter Leaders of Color — for us, by us.

At a time when the symptomatic issues of oppression are felt across our social and political systems, we are called back to the root. During this event we will, as a community, focus on our most vulnerable students, seeking to create and share strategies to address the root causes of inequities magnified by COVID-19.  During this virtual gathering, you and your school leadership teams will have the opportunity to connect, collaborate, and build equitable restart supports that center your most vulnerable students.
