A Commitment to Equity & Justice

One of the indicators of Radically Reimagined Relationships is a Commitment to Equity & Justice, which we define as, “Individually and collectively, the school community advocates for equity for all groups and justice for all individuals.  The school recognizes the dignity of each person and their right to find challenge, joy, and purpose in their lives.”  Before individuals and groups can find challenge, joy, and purpose, they first must be given the opportunity to live, and I don’t mean that in any grandiose fashion.  They have to be able to breathe. 

Black and Brown people are suffering and dying every day in our White supremacist culture: from lack of adequate health care, from lack of access to quality food and education, and far too often at the hands of police.  If you're looking for some ideas of what to read to deepen your anti-racism work, here is a collection of some of the pieces I've found helpful.
