We are excited to partner with the Anti-Defamation League, our nations’ premier civil rights / human relations organization to lead us through an interactive workshop developed just for the Greenhill community. Trained ADL facilitators will share best practices, tools and strategies on HOW to have conversations with our children and students on topics dealing with race, implicit bias and social justice. While we recognize that these are complex, and multi-layered, our true intent is to encourage dialog and improve cultural competencies.
During the interactive workshop, participants will breakout into smaller groups based upon school division (PS/LS, MS and US). An ADL facilitator will lead each divisional workshop. They will cover developmentally appropriate ways for participants to help improve their cultural competencies.
Consider this event as an invitation to be more curious, courageous and to brainstorm ways to “be the change, we wish to see” in our community and world. We have to begin to prepare ourselves as parents and create spaces for our children to have meaningful conversations about the racial tensions we see in the world, our city and in our communities.
