As schools nationwide implement diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging initiatives amidst the ongoing debates about Critical Race Theory (or “CRT”), many faculty, parents and guardians are struggling to understand the value of Racial Literacy and what positive things it can offer a school’s culture and curriculum.
This workshop will help faculty, parents and guardians learn accurate definitions of Racial Literacy and CRT (dispelling distortions and inaccuracies) as well as provide an overview of how Racial Literacy can be integrated into a curriculum to promote equity and belonging for all.
We will provide an engaging, interactive, and safe space to ask sincere questions without judgment. All parents and guardians who are eager, curious and open, are welcome to join us for a conversation surrounding this topic.
Participation norms and guidelines to ensure a safe learning environment for all participants will be established at the outset of the workshop. The Zoom room will open at 6:50PM ET. We will begin at 7:00PM ET and run until 8:30PM ET. A Zoom link will be shared upon registration.
