Racism is rooted deeply in our communities and schools and continuing to wreak havoc on our students of color. As we continue to talk about SEL, we know the fight for equity is inextricably tied to SEL. Our organization is committed to ensuring SEL isn’t used as a tool to police black and brown bodies or create cultures of compliance. Rather, we are seeking to support systems that empower and uplift our students, putting their greatness on full display. This can’t be done by simply being allies. We must use our voices and privilege to be co-conspirators in the effort to dismantle systems of oppression. The old way of “doing school” is not working for far too many of our students. As we think about the future of education we must reimagine our systems and be intentionally anti-racist. We look forward to collaborating with you on this journey.
