ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

The first MDA Conference was organized in 1984 in an effort to provide staff development and information for educators and community members who worked with African-American children in suburban school settings. Now in its 37th year, the MDA continues its commitment to the cultural development and academic achievement of children of color. We start each conference with the premise that all children can learn, must learn, and will learn. This year's theme is "Strengthening the social-emotional and academic health of students of color, through self-care and trauma-informed practices."
