United StatesAs educators we recognize the need for on-going conversation on teaching about issues of race and bias at all levels of schooling. However, we see very few staff inservices or resources devoted to these important topics. We want to give educators and community members an opportunity to learn from and network with one another and to find new resources (print, web and human) that can help us all confront racist, classist and biased education.
