Let’s keep building an inclusive school at Morris Jeff!
The Morris Jeff Family Partnership invites parents, guardians and community members to attend the Race and Equity Training presented by Matthew Kincaid of Overcoming Racism on Saturday, January 26, 2019. This is the second part of the training, an all-day event in the library at the Lopez campus. You can still participate if you did not attend the first session previously offered by the MJFP. Childcare and lunch are provided. Participants are asked to stay the whole day to get the most out of the training. Although this training is designed for parents, MJCS board members and MJCS school personnel are welcome to participate.
Racism and classism shape opportunity and access in American society. Even our most academically well-rounded students will face the brutal realities of systemic oppression, stereotype threat and microaggressions. It is important that all organizations that function within the educational space work together to dismantle these systems for students and communities. — Overcoming Racism
