To connect and empower people to build a more just and peaceful community and world.
The Anti-Racism Working Group has been following up on their petition to the School Board, by putting together a webinar series to inform people about issues around Equity in Education.
School systems around the nation are seeing the need for a greater understanding of—and deliberate action to address—the sources of racism and racial inequities within their schools. They are making bold institutional commitments to an in-depth review of their policies and procedures, and investing in anti-racism education for students, teachers, administrators, and staff for the long run. In Sarasota, recurring tensions around race and persistent racial inequality indicate that the district needs to join these school systems around the nation.
