THE STORY:

I am raising money to attend an anti-bias, anti-racism training that is is geared toward education. I am a second grade teacher in Kalamazoo County. I work at a school and within a district that has a growing diverse population. My desire is to empower my students and ensure they are given all the tools to be successful.

Just as many schools across the world, our local schools have a shift in student population. Historical data indicates a decrease of students identifying as White and an increase of students identifying themselves as a student of color. As our student population shifts to one of greater diversity, our staff is met with new challenges to meet the needs of every student.

My goal, similar to others, is to assist in creating an environment where diversity is fostered and where various perspectives are valued and encouraged. Furthermore, assure that students experience similar opportunities to thrive and advance.

To assist my district, school, and myself to move forward to have conversations about race and racism, it requires a great deal of knowledge, sensitivity, and training. Therefore, my desire is to attend the Anti-Bias, Anti-Racism Education Workshop facilitated by ERAC/Ce of Kalamazoo, and Crossroads Antiracism Organizing & Training. This workshop is designed for educators – participants will look in-depth on how prejudice and bias develop in children and adults, while gaining the insight into developing appropriate ways to support children and adults on these issues. This workshop will also assist with developing the capacity to create anti-biased classrooms and educational settings.

I am hoping to acquire the needed funds to attend this transformational workshop. The tuition fee is $1,800, which includes a 10-day curriculum that begins in August and will finish this winter.

So, I am asking for your assistance. Racism is real and it affects all of us! My hope is to begin dismantling institutional racism within my organization to assist with eliminating racism!

Thank you!!!
Stronger together!
