As 2014 came to a close, breaking news heightened many people’s awareness of how important it is for educators to find compelling strategies to address diversity and school safety issues.
Across the country there is a much greater concern about racial stereotyping by police. And tragically we saw the suicide of 12-year old Ronin Shimizu in Folsom, CA, presumably because he couldn’t take the bullying he was targeted with because he was a young male cheerleader.
GroundSpark is kicking off the new year by offering resources and support that can truly make a difference.
Please join us for a special two-day intensive Bay Area Respect For All Project Institute, February 6th and 7th. It’s designed for those who work with youth to become more confident, skilled facilitators of social change dialogue and activism in their schools and communities.
