CAMBRIDGE FAMILIES OF COLOR COALITION
The Cambridge Families of Color Coalition (CFCC) is a collective of Families and Students of Color working to uplift, empower, celebrate, and nurture our students and each other. Our work is rooted in racial, social, and economic equity. Our goal is to see Cambridge Public Schools be a place where Students of Color thrive academically, socially, emotionally, physically, and in spirit.
Our vision is an anti-racist school district where Caregivers and Students of Color are involved in every decision about their education and understand and can access all the resources available to them. We imagine a district where Caregivers and Students of Color know that their lives, their success, and their excellence are valued above all else.
We are here to:
Advocate for CPS Families of Color and amplify their needs around the challenges of COVID-19
Provide support and center the needs of our Students of Color
Serve as educational advocates for Families and Students of Color during school meetings throughout the district at all levels
Take direct action to ensure that our Students of Color thrive and are able to be their best selves in an anti-racist and racially-equitable public school system
Create spaces for Families of Color to share their concerns and ideas to support their children's educational needs
Share information about navigating CPS systems for new and existing Families of Color
