Stronger Together - Anti Racism Education, Conversations and Book Studies to Continue
(8-20-2020) In partnership with Arlington Public Schools, we just completed the first series of anti-racism education and conversations with the community. The series led by Mr. Will Nelson, Director of Equity and Student Success, was well received. We commend Will for his expertise and dedication to building community through unity.
Our goal to help everyone feel safe in our community and to shape progress by increasing awareness and providing learning tools to model change, and provide opportunity to interrupt the cycles of oppression, and breakdown structural racism. Every community member has a role to play in combating hate.
"I hope you will join us in the online sessions which will continue with monthly classes and discussion hours," said Mayor Barb.
