The Role of K-12 Schools in Addressing Racially Motivated Violence

From police violence around the country to the marked increase in attacks on members of the Asian American Pacific Islander community, we are continuing to see disturbing examples of racially motivated violence in the news. Over the past year, social movements have been thrust into the national spotlight, with youth at the forefront of the conversation. Recent incidents are impacting them in multiple ways, but how should K-12 schools respond?

In this webinar, we have assembled a statewide panel of students, educators, and a community organizer to discuss the impacts of racially motivated violence and how schools can best support students on a daily basis. They also answer your questions.

A Listening Session with Voices from the Latino Community, Part 3

COVID-19 has presented challenges to students and families across Washington state. And although every community faces similar issues, the pandemic has uniquely impacted some communities. To learn more and provide support, League of Education Voters believes in outreach to the Latino community in a culturally and linguistically appropriate way.

In our free webinar Thursday, April 22 at 12:30 pm, we have assembled another statewide panel of Latino thought leaders, community leaders, and educators to share their perspectives on which investments need to be made and what the COVID recovery process should look like, what we need to see as we head back to in-person learning, and what we are looking forward to that we’ve missed during the pandemic.

This webinar will be presented in Spanish, with live English interpretation and live closed captioning in English available.

Moderated by League of Education Voters Director of Field and Community Engagement Eric Holzapfel.
