CARE’s Web Series
There’s never been a more critical time for educators to understand and apply antiracist principles. And it’s best done in community! The Summer Conversations experience will help you and your professional learning community to plan how to move forward on the journey.
In four half-hour conversations, diverse groups of scholars and practitioners unpack the CARE Principles and explore what it means to be an antiracist educator. Our companion toolkit will get the conversation started and keep it going!
I thought there was very valuable dialogue about some of the challenges but then also some of the excuses we might use not to have the hard conversations. I loved the emphasis at the end about trying to just determine what is the next thing you can do. Made it feel so much more manageable to present to staff and to even guide our whole building equity team. If we all commit to one next step and then regroup and determine the next step imagine the progress!”– Participant in Spring Web Series
