Lawrence Community Dialogue on Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity

Lawrence Community Dialogue on Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity

Wednesday, May 23, 6:30-8 pm

Lawrence Library

Come join us for a Lawrence parent/caregiver-teacher community conversation about how to build a stronger, more aware, and more inclusive Lawrence community.

This conversation will be facilitated by Zoe Kern, Lawrence Spanish teacher and Anti-Defamation League liaison.

Why is this conversation important?  

                Our goal is to have an open dialogue about diversity and inclusion within our Lawrence community, including experiences of hate speech/symbols as well as other types of intolerance/exclusion.  What are the issues, and what kinds of education on these topics might be needed/possible in K-8?

What work is currently being done at Lawrence on these issues?

                Learn about Lawrence’s new Peer Leader Program (led by Ms. Kern) and professional learning groups organized by Lawrence teaching staff, among other efforts.  How can parents/caregivers support this work, and what work is ongoing on the parent/caregiver side?

 

What more could we do together at Lawrence?

Brainstorm with us!  There is interest in forming a new Lawrence Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Committee to bring together kids, parents/caregivers, teachers, and administrators working on these issues from all angles.
