Black Lives Matter

The uncertainty of the last few months has been amplified in recent weeks. In addition to COVID having a disproportionate impact on our schools and communities, we’ve witnessed the public murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Elijah McClain, Ahmaud Arbery, and countless others, once again bringing to light the systemic racism, and specifically anti-Blackness, facing our Black communities. This moment calls us all to embrace so many of the lessons learned in our classrooms and through our work with our students & families — all community members being seen, heard, loved and embraced are critical to progress, as is that of partnering authentically and taking collective action towards justice. As Elisa shared in her email, we stand against brutality toward Black lives –Black Lives Matter– and we commit to providing our community with support to heal, restore, and come together on behalf of our students, families, and communities.
