Date: October 8, 2020
Time: 11:30 am – 1:00 pm PST
We acknowledge that this is a difficult time for many students and families in our communities, both here in Washington state and around the nation. And we acknowledge the ongoing injustices endured by the Black community and other communities of color.
COVID-19 has illuminated many areas of inequity in our educational system. Not every student has the same access online. Not every family has the support needed to tutor. We all have seen that in the last several months. But leaders in conversations around educational equity have long known that our schools are not equitable, especially when it comes to race. COVID-19 has given us an opportunity to have critical conversations and develop solutions together.
Join us on October 8, 2020 from 11:30 am-1:00 pm for a statewide virtual FREE convening around Racial Equity and Education. First, we will hear from Dr. Benjamin Danielson, Director of Odessa Brown Children’s Clinic in Seattle, exploring the role of racial equity, diversity, access, and inclusion in our public education system. Then, join us as we break into groups to discuss the issue together.
“He’s one of my favorite people in the whole world — a gentle, quiet soul who speaks so from the heart, and has the ability to move people to address issues of equity and social justice”
— Patty Hayes, director of Public Health, Seattle & King County
