Catch up with SEED next week at the National LGBTQ Task Force's Creating Change conference in Philadelphia! Come to our workshop session or stop by our exhibit table. We also invite SEED leaders and friends to join us for a social gathering, even if you're not attending the conference.
If you're already a SEED leader, the workshop is a great place to refresh your skills or to refer friends who might be curious about SEED. If you're not a SEED leader, we welcome you to come experience some of what SEED has to offer. Co-directors Emmy Howe and Gail Cruise-Roberson, along with Staff Members Donald Burroughs and Padraig (Pat) Hurley will facilitate:
Let’s Talk Race and Gender in Schools
Friday, January 20, 3:00 to 4:30pm
Historically, schooling is a system that holds inequities based on race, gender and sexual identity in place. Participants will look inward at how they were schooled to deal with diversity and connection, a necessary prelude to creating community/curricula that empower all children and families. Participants will explore strategies used by SEED leaders/teachers for creating spaces where all voices are valued. In the wake of the recent election, participants will address how student fears can be aired and honored in diverse settings using SEED’s methods of intentionally structured group conversation.
SEED leaders and friends are also invited to join us on Saturday from 7:30-9:00 p.m. for dinner (pay on your own) and a social gathering. Reconnect with old friends, meet new ones, and learn how others are doing SEED work in their schools and organizations. Contact Gail Cruise-Roberson for details if you're interested.
