Last fall the Foundation was pleased to support an assortment of nonprofit projects focused on addressing racial equity within our organizations and our community. Lots of reflecting, learning and sharing has begun as we all move forward in this journey to dismantle systemic racism.
Three of the many excellent learning opportunities that emerged from those mini-grants are coming up this week. We hope you’ll check them out and participate if you can.
A facilitated discussion about the book Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You by Jason Reynolds and Ibram X. Kendi. The book was adapted from Kendi’s award-winning book, Stamped from the Beginning, to make the topic more accessible and informative for young adults. Joe Corrazini, Framingham Public Schools (FPS) assistant superintendent for equity, diversity and community, and Taylor Collins, FPS history teacher, will lead the discussion. You need not have read the book to participate.
Our thanks to all of the host organizations for bringing these learning opportunities to our community.
