About The Event
Last year, a group of parents of racialised children at JICS came together to discuss shared experiences at school and beyond. At that time, many of us were reeling from the disproportionate impact of the pandemic on our communities and the proliferation of incidents of anti-Black, anti-Asian and anti-Indigenous racism. We met in order to create 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.
This is the second meeting of this year. The group first met on April 6, where we discussed our experiences as JICS parents of BIPOC children and how and what other purposes the group might serve. If you would like to join the second meeting on Tuesday, May 3, please RSVP by Monday, April 25. A zoom address will later be emailed to registered participants by the parent reps for this group.
