Event description

Description

While many schools in DC are almost entirely segregated by race and class, there are some schools, often in gentrifying neighborhoods, with a more diverse population. But within these schools, segregation and inequities persist (and are often reinforced). Our next event will bring parents across the District together to share stories about what's working (and not working) in building healthy, respectful, and equitable communities in gentrifying schools.

The event will feature psychologist and cultural competence expert Dr. Samantha Sweeney; Allyson Criner Brown of Teaching for Change; and a panel of parents sharing their personal lessons learned.

If you are grappling with how your school can build a more diverse PTO, or hold more inclusive social events, or just how to connect with other parents from different backgrounds, this is an event for you.

Please join our Facebook group for more!


Snacks will be provided.

Childcare is available -- please let us know in your RSVP if you need it.
