Community-centered conversation on important issues Lunch and Learn!

EEC, in collaboration with the Racial Equity Team and CIRCC, has launched a community-centered learning series on important issues in race and education. After the success of our Tribal Lunch and Learn – a “first-of-it’s-kind lunch meeting” filled with “progress, challenges, and inspiration” – we heard from community that more conversations like this need to be had. We heard requests to learn more about the connection between mental health and racism, on how we define the opportunity gap, on the experiences of teachers of color in schools, and on a variety of other issues.

As we work towards ending racism in WA’s educational system, we believe that it’s important to come together as a community to learn, explore, and expand our understanding of institutionalized racism in all systems, as well as provide the platform for communities to come together and mobilize.

The Next Event

Our next Lunch and Learn will be January 9, 2019 at 12pm, at the Bethaday Community Learning Center. RSVP Here!
