How we talk about race and racial justice is very important. But it is equally important to bring ALL stakeholders to the table as we discuss and explore racial justice in education and the impact it has on our students. Because Education Support Professionals (ESP) represent one-third of any given school workforce and 75% live in the school community in which they work, it is vital that ESP are a part of the conversation about racial justice in education. ESP know their students and with shared knowledge, they can have courageous conversation about racial justice and help lead the work on racial equity in their schools. Join us to develop a shared understanding of racial justice in education, recognize how social injustices impact our students of color, and develop strategies to engage in dialogue with colleagues and community about racial justice.
