Jason Romanowski

This is Jason from Boston. How have you facilitated dialogues to ensure POC don’t feel re-traumized when discussing racial issues?
Aspen Baker
52:20
LOL!
Marie Taylor
58:09
If you are having mixed race groups, how do you control having the white voice continue to be the most heard voice in the space?
Jarrod Green
58:15
Curious to hear more about the process of adjusting the curriculum for different communities. What does that process look like? What were the signs that you needed to adjust? How quickly was it effective to make changes to plans?
Lorraine Jones
58:26
How do you get buy in from white parents in a context when they are the majority ?
Sangeeta Prasad

Identity and advocacy
Abby Lublin

About how many people are attending each meeting?
Johanna Bauman

Do you ever work with affinity groups?
Sangeeta Prasad
01:00:58
Starting next year affinity groups
Jessica Sutter
01:01:02
Seconding Marie Taylor’s question and adding - How do you avoid centering whiteness/privilege in the conversations about what caring for “all children as if they were their own”?
Camille Proctor
01:03:11
So, this is commentary. There needs to be a deeper reach to communities color. Unfortunately, even with the webinar minorities are being discussed as “studies and data”. The reality is there needs to be a better effort! I don’t mean to be rude, but as an African American I can’’tell my Italian friend how to make “gravy”, so why would there be an expectation for minorities to listen to non minorities. The failure will continue as long as there’s no audience. You gain an audience by going into a community and asking what “they need”. So, while I appreciate the sentiment, we can’t continue to have these looking glass conversations. (FYI my tone is pretty low my commentary is just sharp lol)
Adam Burk
01:08:33
here’s a sincere and humble effort happening locally.

addresses some of the issues of what is culturally relevant and personally desirable.
Adam Burk
01:09:54
meals are shared while seated on the floor. handwork is being done. kids are playing. relationships are slowly being built.
Lorraine Jones
01:11:14
Are you able to speak to children at schools about issues race?
Camille Proctor
01:11:41
@Dr. Prasad’s answer to my comment. That will work and you’ll find success in doing that. In Detroit we recently held an African American townhall. Parents were comfortable and shared. I think that familiarity will lead families to honesty and with honesty you can do a better job. Thanks for all that you do!!
Krista Gigone
01:16:18
How are do you approach accessibility? I'm thinking specifically about potential physical and language barriers, but also things like neurodiversity (kids and parents).
Adam Burk
01:27:16
+1 this question about equity.
