Responding to Anti-Asian Violence and Georgia Shootings

Dear Families,

I am sharing this article from Learning for Justice in response to the ongoing Anti-Asian Violence in this country and the Georgia Shootings on Tuesday night.  It calls on each of us to reflect on our role in the constant struggle for racial justice.

TNS teachers and staff are sharing resources to support classroom conversations about Anti-Asian Violence in this country and ABAR lessons, resources, and read-alouds about Asian American history and identity.

We will continue to support our AAPI students, families, and staff to feel safer in school and beyond.  To that end, I encourage all of our parents of color and white parents of children of color to join our monthly BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and people of color) support group.  The next meeting is Thursday, March 25 at 5 PM.  Here’s the link to register.  We are also in the process of partnering with NYU’s Education Justice Research and Organizing Collaborative to organize a workshop series for families this spring.  To do ABAR work as a community, we adults must have tools to talk about racism with each other and our children.

With Love,

Dyanthe
