ASCD community: George Floyd could have been our brother, our father, our son...So we can't stop speaking, marching or taking action until we're certain that you're listening, that you're watching, that you are ready...Ready to concede to our demands. Ready to not dismiss our experiences. Ready to assure us that the pattern of callousness, indifference and injustice will not continue unchecked, unaccounted for and without consequences. We won't go back to the way things were before. We won't be silenced. We won't be forgotten nor will we be told that simply because our experiences are not your experiences that they do not matter. George Floyd - your legacy lives on. Your life mattered. Call to Action: Policing must change but so must our schools. What else will you do to improve your schools for the betterment of African American and Latinx students?
