You are invited to learn with the Alki PTA!
In June, the Alki PTA made a resolution to increase education for families on how to be anti-racist and become an ally. The resources below are a starting point, as each person has a different knowledge base, as well as a different amount of time to focus on antiracist education. The options below provide a range from adding an account to follow on your Instagram feed, reading a book for yourself or to your child, delving into art, listening to a podcast or supporting a black owned bookstore. Please choose something from this list or educate yourself in other ways throughout this month.
You can add your learning, questions, and comments about these works on the Padlet. Remember that all commentary must follow the Alki Way: Always be responsible, Let kindness be your guide, Keep yourself and others safe, Inspire respect and pride.
