***To ensure an engaging and productive learning experience, attendance will be capped at 100 people. The Zoom link will be available on this page 5 minutes before the session start time. Please note, clicking the “Register” button does NOT guarantee access, as attendees will be let in from the waiting room on a first come, first served basis.*** Has your students' use of the N word turned into a viral social media post? Do you worry about anti-immigrant sentiment erupting on the playground? Does fear of potentially saying the wrong thing keep you from talking about race? In this workshop, you will learn how to engage in conversations about race. Participants will emerge with a clearer understanding of the role and impact of race on K-12 campuses and leave with practical tools to help build more inclusive teaching and learning spaces.
