What is anti-racism? We will explore the ideas of privilege, bias, social justice and diversity to develop a more equitable and just culture in our schools and community at large. The function of the session would be to create a shift towards a more focused approach to, and active practice of anti-racism. In this ever-changing climate of 2020, it is increasingly important for educators to move beyond simply not being racist to actively practicing anti-racism.
