Preparing for the New Year

Hi Friends!
We have set the date for hosting the IntegratedSchools presentation for Saturday, January 12. I plan to start getting the word out around December 27 when people might start checking their email again. If you can please share the invitation with your groups and email lists at that time, I would really appreciate it. If any of you have visual skills (making my text flyer look appealing), could you let me know if you can help me? And if you’re available to attend or to help out with logistics, I’d love your assistance. Just let me know how you can help in the new year!
A reminder that a group member is looking for company to chat with the W-L principal about some ways the school can minimize the presence of Lee. Please let me know if you’re interested.
Our group members have been so wonderful about sending me articles and resources to share!
(1) A new study discussed in The Washington Post about how white liberals dumb down their language when speaking to black people.
(2) The Atlantic published a story on “How Well-Intentioned White Families Can Perpetuate Racism”.(3) If you’re looking for some new reading material for the coming year, check out Race/Related’s list.
For those of you interested in the Challenging Racism discussion series, they are currently accepting applications (deadline is December 28). The 11 sessions run from January to May from 7:00–9:30 pm and applicants need to commit to attending all of the sessions.
If you have any requests for topics or speakers or content for the new year, please let me know. I love hearing about what you’re doing and what interests you!
Listen. Amplify. Follow.
