In her November NCTM President’s Message, Trena Wilkerson encouraged the membership “to consider building, enlarging, and empowering our mathematics community in ways that broaden the purposes of teaching and learning mathematics and foster a sense of belonging in the mathematics community.” As an exemplar of the president’s message, NCTM recognized Bob Moses, president and founder of the Algebra Project, Inc. Bob Moses was honored posthumously for a Lifetime of Work Dedicated to Social Justice and Equity in Mathematics Education.
