From a long history of police brutality and racism targeting the Black community to a rise in attacks on the Asian American Pacific Islander community, we are continuing to see disturbing examples of racially motivated violence in the news. This past year, we have witnessed some of the largest protests in U.S. history amidst a worldwide outcry against racial injustice. Since then, social movements have been thrust into the national spotlight, with youth at the forefront of the conversation. Recurring incidents of racially motivated violence are impacting our youth in multiple ways, but how should K-12 schools respond?
In this webinar centering student voices, we have assembled a statewide panel of students, educators, and community organizers to discuss the impacts of racially motivated violence, presenting tools that can be used in schools to best support students on a daily basis. They will also answer your questions.
Moderated by Denisha Saucedo, the 2018 Puget Sound Educational Service District Regional Teacher of the Year and 6th grade teacher at Kent Elementary School, and her daughter Alisha Saucedo, a senior at Thomas Jefferson High School in the Federal Way School District.
