In the wake of the killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, Ahmaud Arbery and others, educators are determining options for a thoughtful response. At first, school principals and college presidents responded by releasing public statements to their campus communities. But public statements in and of themselves are meaningless without thoughtful action that addresses the pervasive real and symbolic violence against Black communities. In this webinar, the presenters will address tangible strategies for addressing anti-Blackness in schools, colleges, and universities. All educators and institutions looking for concrete next steps should attend.
The purpose of the Social Justice Academy: Working toward Educational Equity workshop is to acquaint participants with the latest research on the need for educational equity and cultural responsive classrooms, to guide participants in creating their own culturally responsive classrooms and schools, and to guide participants in the development of strategies to advocate for their own students.
