Let's Do This Together

In order to  bring about educational justice and positive change in our schools and organizations, we must incorporate anti-racism. Anti-racism calls for us to specifically address systemic racism and the history of this nation. Although you may not be actively racist as a person, it is critical that we contend with the systemic racism that is pervasive in education. Anti-racism means we acknowledge this and begin to undo the harm that it has caused.
