Challenging Racism: Building Understanding (Zoom Seminar)




The Discovery PTA is offering up the opportunity to attend a three part series of virtual seminars entitled, ‘Challenging Racism: Building Understanding,’ to parents, as well as interested faculty.


The three topics include: (1) School Segregation & Racial Inequity in Arlington; (2) Racial Microaggressions – Why do They Matter and How to Interrupt Them; and (3) How to Talk to Children and Adolescents about Race.


The workshops aim to: (1) build racial literacy, (2) impart understanding of the roots and implications of residential segregation and institutional racism in our community, (3) foster racial awareness and improve interpersonal skills, and (4) establish a shared urgency to talk about race.
