Going to the National Association of Independent Schools' People of Color Conference (POCC) this week? Catch a session with SEED leaders, attend the book signing for the new Diversity Work in Independent Schools (which includes a contribution about SEED), or just be on the lookout for SEED leaders so you can chat or say hi.
SEED Co-director Emmy Howe wrote recently at the Wellesley Centers for Women blog about "Creating Space for More Than Tolerance" in schools. We hope you'll go read about her own and her daughter's experiences, and how she believes teachers can create space for tolerance in their classrooms.
Today is Spirit Day, when millions around the U.S. are speaking out against bullying and in support of LGBT youth. While SEED doesn't need a crisis such as bullying to address the very real power dynamics of race, class, gender, sexual orientation, etc. that play out systemically in schools and communities to the detriment of all, it has had a significant impact in schools wanting to address bullying and harassment.
