We see an immediate impact in the following ways:
STUDENT WELL BEING/MENTAL HEALTH
The impact of isolation is akin to smoking 11 cigarettes a day according to the Surgeon General who also suggests that racial socialization is the antidote for Black and brown students. Our core foundational pillar is racial socialization -- we work to (re)affirm what it means to be a Black and/or brown student or parent within the context of our history, traditions, and culture.
INCLUSIVE & EQUITABLE SCHOOL COMMUNITIES
Parent and student engagement impacts student experience (e.g. creates experiences that are more equitable and inclusive)
SYSTEMIC AND INSTITUTIONAL POLICY & PROCESS CHANGE
Parent education, engagement & advocacy yields awareness and creates momentum in support of the needs of our community.
“There is no power for change greater than a community discovering what it cares about."
– Margaret J. Wheatley
