Beginning February 1st, 2023, the Education Justice Research and Organizing Collaborative (EJ-ROC) at NYU Metro Center will host a series of six (6) monthly workshops designed specifically for white public school parents in New York City committed to becoming anti-racist and to collaboratively building equitable, powerful, multiracial parent communities in their schools.
Sessions will include a wide array of exercises, conversations, and lessons; ranging from exploring readings, podcasts, and reflections on the impact of white supremacy on our thinking and practices. These workshop sessions will also engage real-time challenges participants are facing in their schools with feedback and help to work through, as well as discussion of actions we can take to challenge and dismantle racist policies and practices in our schools and communities.
Workshop topics will include:
- How internalized white superiority shows up in our actions, relationships, and institutions
- Being allies/accomplices to parents of color in our schools & a historical look at white anti-racist allies
- Building authentic relationships with other parents across race & class
- Building an anti-racist practice & interrupting racism when confronted with it
We encourage groups of 2-3 parents from the same school to apply together.
Cost: The cost for the workshop series is $360 per person.
Groups of 2 to 3 parents who register will be charged a reduced fee of $320 per person.
Your payment for this workshop series helps cover the expense of these workshops, but also helps to facilitate justice work initiatives conducted by EJ-ROC.
Dates: February 1st, March 1st, March 29th, May 10th, and June 7th
Time: 7pm - 9pm
