About 200 CFT members from around the state converged at San
Francisco’s Hyatt Regency for a Leadership Conference — the first
time they’d been able to join together for such an event since
the state shut down for COVID on March 13, 2020.
Seeming excited to see one another in person, attendees went to
workshops, many dealing with racial and social justice issues,
and heard from speakers including JEDI (Justice, Equity,
Diversity and Inclusion) Organizer Cynthia Eaton, State
Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Thurmond, and AFT
President Randi Weingarten.
