Families in communities of privilege pose a unique challenge within educators equity and social justice work. Even when supportive, these families often lack tools, self-awareness, motivation, and confidence to join in on the work.
In this workshop, participants will hear about one schools efforts, come together to strategize and set goals to shift families from observers to partners, and gain a better understanding of how schools and families interact to further or hinder their anti-bias curriculum.
Participants will come away with concrete plans having had the support from one another. This workshop offer time to reflect on needs, stakeholders, resources and troubleshoot obstacles.
Why I Should Attend:
White people have a different type of work to do. They must process feelings different and take a different course of action when it comes to supporting the liberation movement of Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC). This session offers a chance for white educational professionals to examine, question, and work collaboratively together to dismantle racism within their schools and activate their families of privilege to join in on the work. If you're a white professional struggling to understand your privilege, struggling to find the words to help other white people join in on the movement, or struggling to figure out where to start, this session is for you.
