It has been a great experience for THE HUMAN ROOT to be involved with the PS 261 community. After implementing anti-bias education and training with teachers, staff and administrators this work is now being offered to parents and the surrounding community. The nation’s social and political climate changes are have had a profound impact on school culture. In this community workshop, stakeholders (parents, neighbors, school staff and teachers ) are asked: What does it mean to develop spaces where consciousness accountability and vision can thrive in a multicultural community? Participants will deepen their connection to the evolving work adults must do to create safe space for children. Participants explore history, tools and resources to define systemic oppression, explore identity and the power of practicing empathy.

  • IDENTIFY Forms and Functions of oppression impacting school culture

  • NOTICE the need for empathy and practicing mindful engagement
