Presentations from Facing Race 2014
Have your attempts to have “the equity conversation” in your school or district led to increased marginalization and upset? Are you struggling to connect how a conversation about race will lead to improved outcomes for children?
This interactive session will explore key racial equity concepts and strategies that support an educator’s ability to identify, interrupt and address inequity in their classrooms and schools. Educators will walk away with a deeper understanding and practical tools for engaging in sense-making conversations about racial equity that lead to productive action.Speakers: Jaime-Jin Lewis, LaShawn Routé Chatmon, Victor Cary, Laura Shmishkiss, Benny Vasquez
