PTA Meeting, Tuesday, March 19

RACIAL EQUITY IN OUR COMMUNITY
With Kyana Wheeler, M.Ed., MPA
Tuesday, March 19 | 6 – 8 p.m. in the Library

Please join racial equity and organizational change specialist, Kyana Wheeler, as she helps us gain the knowledge to become a more equitable institution capable of responding to injustices facing our communities.

Beginning with a foundational learning about why a racial analysis is imperative to achieve social justice, Kyana will explore concepts of structural racism, intersectionality and the construction of white dominant culture in an effort to help define our individual and institutional roles in the work of equity and justice. To learn more about Kyana, visit www.kyanawheeler.com.

Important Note: Because Tuesday’s meeting runs longer than most, the presentation begins at 6:00 PM instead of our usual 6:30 start time.

All are welcome to this event! (No requirement to be a PTA member.)

Hosted by Thurgood Marshall PTA and Equity Action Teams and funded with your contributions to the Thurgood Marshall PTA.

FREE Childcare with PIZZA for children ages 5-12 whose parents are at the meeting. You MUST reserve your child’s place in advance – contact Cody at cpapka@seattleYMCA.org. Children may not arrive before 6:00 PM.
