During our student discussion last Friday afternoon, Mrs. Cheryl Grimes, our BSAP Achievement Liaison, offered some action steps that our students and community can take during this time. This Anger into Action list is meant to serve two purposes: to give us all some ideas about what we can do to create change and to offer some resources to help us better understand the effects systematic racism has had on all of us. It is not intended to be all-encompassing, yet a starting point for those feeling bewildered about where to begin this work. To truly create change we must fully expose the underbelly of oppression and bias, be willing to have courageous and uncomfortable conversations, all while showing grace to ourselves and each other. Let's GO!
Here are some great resources provided by the Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion and Social Studies Offices
