“Multiple staff members in the Southern Hancock district will participate in a workshop called 'Undoing Racism,' a 16-hour event that occurs over two days. Following the workshop, participants will attend race-relations dialogue circles, facilitated in our town, to debrief, reflect, plan and anticipate the needs of students based on what we learn. Our dream is a contingent of adults and students that understand the roots and repercussions of racism in our culture and are equipped to provide a safe, fair and nurturing school environment for everyone.”
