<Juneteenth Banner

As we prepare to celebrate the first federally-recognized Juneteenth, ACES joins @aacu, @AAUP, @PENamerica, and @AHAHistorians and dozens of other professional associations and organizations in endorsing the Joint Statement of Legislative Efforts to Restrict Education about Racism and American History. In the coming days and months ACES will be rolling out a number of initiatives that are designed to actively demonstrate our commitment to Antiracism and Social Justice.

We encourage all members to actively learn more about racism in American history with a special focus on understanding the clear and persistent impacts of racism on client and student mental health, educational attainment, and overall wellbeing. We urge those who are teaching and supervising this summer to engage students in conversation regarding impacts of this legislation on their work in educational and community settings and remind them regarding opportunities to implement the ACA Advocacy Competencies
