Talley PTO Equity Series

The Talley Street PTO Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee is sponsoring a series for parents and faculty entitled: The Myths of Racism and Beyond: Personal and Community Reflections. 

Whether you are a social justice champion or wrestling with these topics for the first time, this workshop will help all of us deepen our understanding of racism and strengthen our commitment to action.

Through independent individual reflections in a personal
 journal and group sessions reflecting as a community once a month, our Talley community will examine the power of race and discuss its impact across racial lines. Everyone is invited to provide their voice, perspective, and experiences with the power of race.

The series will cover the article “The 10 Myths White People Believe About Racism,” with a paired bite-sized reading and short racial equity video assigned each month.

The series will include time for independent individual reflections through a personal journal and time for community reflections during group discussions once a month. Community Reflections will be Thursdays 8-9pm on Zoom on the following dates: October 29, November 19, January 21, February 25, March 18, April 22, and May 13.

If you are unable to attend all sessions, you can work through the personal reflections on your own and join the community reflections as you can. 

To join, please fill out this Google form. Email CSD parent and co-facilitator Charlie Copp (charlesdcopp@gmail.com) with any questions.
