Come support students at antiracism event

 

Dear Editor,

Join Vermont students, advocates, nonprofit leaders, equity directors, and more for an event on Nov. 8.

In 2023, the Vermont Student Anti-Racism Network and the Rutland NAACP sent out a survey asking about student experiences with racism in schools. We got alarming — but not necessarily surprising — results. 

At this event, we are releasing the survey results, hosting a panel discussion of students and administrators, and hearing from national speaker Professor Loretta J Ross, talking about book bans and racial justice in America. 

Join us at the Center for Community & Social Justice at Champlain College or on Zoom on Nov. 8 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. to be a part of our movement. 

This event is the launch of a larger campaign to address racism in schools through workshops, presentations, and distribution of resources in schools. 

This event is led by the Vermont Student Anti-Racism Network, Rutland NAACP, Building Fearless Futures, VT Racial Justice Alliance, and a broad coalition of equity directors and leaders.  Register at:  forms.gle/MMpWQHXfxHGJqKap6 

Addie Lentzner and Aaliyah Wilburn

Students, Vermont Student Anti-Racism Network

The reason: all the school budgets voters…
