Advocacy Space for JICS Racialised Parents and Parents of Racialised Children
Time & Location
About The Event
A new parent conversation and advocacy space for racialised families is forming. Please see their message below:
A small group of racialised parents and parents of racialised children at JICS have recently come together to discuss our shared experiences at school and beyond. Over the past year, the disproportionate impact of the pandemic on our communities and the most recent incidents of anti-Black, anti-Asian and anti-Indigenous racism have placed an even greater demand on our capacity for resilience. Together, we hope to form a safe space for discussing the issues impacting our children, and as a means to collect and convey our observations, our needs as racialised families, and any advice to the school around equity and inclusion.
The next zoom meeting of the group is scheduled for May 25, 7 - 8:30 pm, where we hope to have a wider discussion about how and what other purposes the group might serve.
Please register by Thursday May 20th. A zoom link will be emailed to registered participants following this deadline.
