    Next Steps

     

    Next Step series welcomes back authors Dr. John Diamond and Dr. Amanda Lewis to discuss Working for Justice: Identifying and ending opportunity hoarding. In racial affinity groups with Dr. Diamond and Dr. Lewis, we will explore what it means to experience and perpetuate opportunity hoarding and how to create justice through transforming opportunity hoarding into action that promotes the collective good of our children. Spanish translation and childcare available. Also, pizza for kids and hot cocoa for adults! Save the date for the next two sessions: March 20 (making action plans for change) and April 17 (panel of D65 decision makers, including representatives from the board, administration, principals, teachers, and parent/PTA).
