Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI)

Tuesday, Aug 18 from 6:30-8:30pm Forum on Race
We are proud to feature Dr. Lori Watson, a Racial Equity and Social Justice Consultant who is partnering with the Acalanes School District on these issues. We hope you’ll take part in this virtual discussion and learn about the vision, mission and goals of the DEI committee while participating in Q&A. Advance registration required.

Tuesday, September 22 at 6:30pm Teacher-moderated Book Club: How To Be An Antiracist by Dr. Ibram X. Kendi
The book, a NYTimes Bestseller, brings a “groundbreaking” approach to understanding and uprooting racism and inequality in our society — and in ourselves. Copies are available at Orinda Books, and a portion of each sale will be donated to the Center for Antiracism Research. Stay tuned for registration and participation details.

Check back with us again next week as we launch a 21-week challenge to engage each other on racial equity and bias with various podcasts, videos and articles.
