We want our kids to have an education that imparts honesty about who we are, integrity in how we treat others and courage to do what’s right to build a better nation. Our goal as educators is to provide a path to racial and social justice by amplifying and celebrating racial and social equity in our schools, meaningful allyship, and restorative justice.
