R.E.I.D. (Race, Equity, Inclusion and Diversity) and Restorative Justice
July 21, 2021at1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
RJ in the Classroom Institute:
This PD will examine the impact of racism, inequity, and exclusion on the learning environment and developing safe spaces to have courageous conversations using the RJ circle process. These circles combine ancient practices and modern procedures to focus on essential relationships and listening. Connecting in a circle allows for communicating, healing, and genuinely understanding experiences and dynamics around systemic racism and its connection to equity, inclusion, and diversity. Participants will review and clarify definitions of important/relevant terms such as racism, systemic racism, bias, prejudice, and explore culturally relevant pedagogy.
