President Davis was at the forefront of public education advocacy and reform, leading the WTU’s transformation into a social justice, solution-driven organization dedicated to advancing and promoting quality education for all children, irrespective of their zip codes or results of the school lottery, improving teaching and learning conditions, and aggressively amplifying the voice of teachers in the dialogue around issues of teaching and learning. We are confident that her legacy will continue to shape the WTU as well as education across the District.
On May 4, 2021, the Council of the District of Columbia approved the “Elizabeth A. Davis Posthumous Memorial Recognition Resolution of 2021.”
