Latinx Caucus

The Latinx Caucus of NCTE/CCCC is a network of Latinx educators in English studies, literacy, and language arts. Our purpose is to:

  • exchange ideas,
  • serve as a resource for  members, the educational community and the general public,
  • and support activities that promote the learning and advancement of students and teachers of color.

Any Latinx educator, or like-minded educator, or preservice educator who is a member of NCTE is invited to join us.



Carlotta Dwyer (Latinx Caucus founder) speaks during the Latinx Caucus Business Meeting at the 2011 NCTE Annual Convention in Chicago.
