Our Mission

We believe it is our moral responsibility to welcome, celebrate and affirm the full spectrum and intersections of human differences in, and beyond our community. We will create a culture that celebrates advocacy and pursues justice for all, especially those from historically marginalized communities. We will practice risk-taking, and challenge one another to continuously examine systems of privilege and bias, and work collectively to confront and interrupt inequity in all its forms.

Equity Toolkit

The reality of the current national climate illustrates that there remains significant threats to the ability of schools to cultivate and sustain learning communities that are safe and supportive for all students. Prejudice, bias, hate and discrimination remain threats that require our vigilance and persistence to ensure that our core values are adhered to, and our mission is realized. This is our work. Stand with us.

    How Can We Interrupt Anti-AAPI Narratives in Schools Amid COVID19

    Join BARWE  (Building Anti-Racist White Educators) Core for a national discussion on April’s topic. RSVP here and we will send you the Zoom meeting link. 

    Overview: Since COVID-19 began to spread, Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities have faced racist comments, jokes, harassment, assaults, and isolating behavior from those afraid of catching the virus. Our students may be facing this violence themselves or perhaps are perpetuating it. Educators have a responsibility to support those harmed by this wave of anti-AAPI violence and interrupt xenophobic narratives and violence.

It is certain, in any case, that ignorance, allied with power, is the most ferocious enemy justice can have.
