General Meeting & Undoing Racism and Teaching Equity Workshop and Training
Come join the JAMS PTSA’s first general meeting of the year for a workshop by Families of Color Seattle (FOCS) and help build a stronger, more equitable community. You do not need to be a PTSA member, but we do ask that folks register at the link below.

Workshop Objectives:

  • Building safer and inclusive spaces: intersectional identities.
  • Understanding the power of narrative, privilege, oppression, and action.
  • Teaching equity to children (focusing on the 10-15 age group) and identifying community resources for further learning.
