Unlocking the Potential of Parents to Fight for Racial Equity in Schools, May 29, 2018

UNLOCKING THE POTENTIAL OF PARENTS TO FIGHT FOR RACIAL EQUITY IN SCHOOLS
A conversation with leaders of the organization Kindred about their work mobilizing parents

REGISTER TO JOIN this free, hour-long, online conversation happening this coming Tuesday, May 29th, at 8:30 pm ET

For better or worse, relationships among parents are an invisible force in all schools, yet we rarely direct time and attention to helping them form and meaningfully contribute to beneficial educational and social outcomes for children. In our diverse elementary schools, parent-parent relationships are particularly important because they influence the flow of resources to children in the form of teacher and principal time and parent organization monies. Join us to hear how one organization, Washington DC’s Kindred, works to mobilize hundreds of parents to engage each together across lines of race and class in the fight for equity in their schools. As always, there’ll be plenty of time for you to ask your questions and offer your insights!

Agenda

8:30 to 8:35 pm ET: Andrew and Melissa of EmbraceRace introduce our guests and frame the conversation.
8:35 to 9:00 pm ET: Laura Wilson Phelan and Sangeeta Prasad of Kindred share what they’ve learned in their work mobilizing hundreds of parents across lines of race and class to fight for racial equity in schools.
