March 9, 2021 — The Peabody Essex Museum (PEM) and the Essex County Learning Community (ECLC) announce the launch of “Ring the Bells for Public School Employees,” an initiative designed to express heartfelt appreciation to all school employees in the 15 school districts in Essex County that are ECLC members. ECLC is a professional development network that helps educators support students with learning disabilities and those who have experienced trauma—as well as students who have been marginalized or minoritized because of structural inequities based on race, culture, income, language, or gender. The ECLC is funded by the Peter and Elizabeth Tower Foundation, with additional funding from the Essex County Community Foundation.
