Description

SPECIAL GUESTS TO BE ANNOUNCED

In partnership with the Mayflower UCC Race Matters Team, EdAllies presents The 8 Black Hands Podcast for an educational justice conversation.

Minnesota prides itself on education. But whether we look at the data or listen to lived experience, it’s clear that too many Minnesota schools are failing students of color and indigenous students.

Too often, students of color do not feel truly seen, heard, and respected in school. Systemic racism leads to a lack of teacher diversity, to curriculum that doesn't meet the bar for cultural relevance, discipline disparities, and bias—both implicit and explicit. From district and state leaders we see lip service without outcomes. Families of color remain underserved.

Finding solutions requires us to check our assumptions, ask earnest questions—and to let people of color answer.

Join us for an educational justice conversation that brings people together: braiding ideas of integration, academic excellence, and parent choice—rather than pitting them against each other—to ensure the agency and autonomy of families of color are respected and protected.
