From a long history of police brutality and racism targeting the Black community to resistance against teaching about systemic racism embedded in our nation's history, we are continuing to see disturbing examples of racism in the news. Last year, we witnessed some of the largest protests in U.S. history amidst a worldwide outcry against racial injustice. Since then, advocacy nonprofits such as League of Education Voters and state agencies like the Washington State Board of Education and the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction have been engaging with students of color to inform their work. Recurring incidents of racism are still impacting our youth in multiple ways, but how should K-12 schools respond?
In this webinar centering student voices, we have assembled a statewide panel of students, educators, and community leaders to discuss the impacts of racially motivated violence, presenting tools that can be used in schools to best support students on a daily basis and provide educators with appropriate skills to create well-rounded, historically accurate curricula.
Spanish interpretation and closed captioning in English will be available.
Moderated by League of Education Voters Communications Director Arik Korman.
