This series of events seeks to center Black voices, as well as celebrate and affirm our Black students and their families. We recognize that when the lights go off in our buildings, we still live, work and socialize together throughout our community. We learn best when we learn alongside one another, and recognize the wealth of knowledge those within our communities offer. As a community, we affirm our commitment to learn from and look out for our neighbors, including those whose voices have been underrepresented in our current systems.
As outlined in our Race and Equity policy, our school district aspires for all students to thrive in an environment that notices, acknowledges, and values who they are and contributes to their academic achievement. Black Voices aspires to provide respectful and relevant learning environments that leverage diversity and create schools where students, families, community members and employees feel welcomed and supported.
For information about last year's events, see 2019-2020 events.
We hope you will consider attending one or more of our Black Voices events this year—we would love to have you!
