Join us for a panel discussion August 2019:
Teaching Children to Courageously Navigate Equity
All children should have access to positive early learning experiences that will set them up for long-term success and wellness. Join us to learn how local educators prepare their students to courageously explore the intersectionality of race, “the system”, schooling and each other. This is done in an effort to help close opportunity gaps and ensure that all children—regardless of race, ethnicity language of origin, income or ability—are set up to reach their full potential.
