Workshop: Educating for Racial Equity in Our Schools

March 15, 2018

Join us in either April or May to identify and practice strategies for interrupting racism in our schools.  

Come join us for a 3-day workshop.

In this interactive workshop, educators will engage in a rigorous and unflinching exploration of racism in the United States today. We will examine how systemic racism operates in our schools to diminish the opportunities and outcomes for black and brown children. We will give special attention to disproportionality in discipline, which feeds the school to prison pipeline. We will focus on anti-blackness as the fulcrum of various forms of oppression in the U.S., and take a frank look at whiteness, power, and history.

We will use our restorative circles format and powerful social and emotional skills to identify and practice strategies for interrupting racism in our schools. By sharing our backgrounds and personal experiences, we will forge powerful bonds with each other, creating a network of support, resources, and a pool of wisdom to draw on long after the workshop ends.
