About Our Organization
Calla and Gerald Wright
are the Founders and President of The Coalition of Concerned Citizens for African American Children, Inc. This is a community-based organization dedicated to teaching parents about the policies, procedures, and
laws that govern our children who attend the Wake County Public School System. Calla
and husband, Gerald Wright, founded the organization in 2004 because of educational issues/concerns they were experiencing
with their sons, Robert and Moses. As parents they felt the need to create
a parent-based organization to inform parents on how to become effective advocates for their children while also teaching
them about WCPSS policies and procedures.
The CCCAAC has been in existence for two
years with over 150 parent supporters, and also partnered with the WCPSS Board of Education, Wake County PTA Council, Wake
Ed Partnership, and countless other community groups and organizations.
The Coalition of Concerned Citizens for
African American Children believes that parents and communities are the voices of our children and as responsible adults we
shape the foundation for our children’s future. As a parent-based
organization, we are working to ensure that all children receive equitable educational opportunities that will lead them
to become productive citizens.
The purpose of CCCAAC is to increase parent's knowledge of policies, practices, and procedures of the local
school system. Our objective is to assist parents in helping their children receive optimal educational opportunities.
