A Call to Action: Addressing Historical and Ending Contemporary Racial Inequities in Schools
Online
Online
As we continue to grapple with the overwhelming aspects of an international pandemic, parents across the nation have taken to both the streets and school boardrooms to demand change around systemic racism and its devastating effects. The stories about racism currently saturating the media are more than simply stories for African Americans and other families of color – they are examples of their lived experiences enduring trauma, racism, and oppression. These historical and on-going traumas have led and continue to lead to academic and social disparities nationwide. Please join us as we explore the historical and contemporary racial inequities faced by Black, indigenous, and other children of color, and the impacts these inequities have on children and their families, staff, and the trauma-sensitive. This webinar will explore resilience-oriented strategies for addressing these impacts at the individual, school, and community level to promote healing and resilience and build a just future for schools, staff, and children.
