2022 Racial Equity Discussion Group 


Join our Zoom group for a multi-part virtual discussion where we
will discuss the concepts of equity and how we, as mentors, can
make a positive change toward improving our society through
our own actions and through the children in our lives.

The multi-part discussion will take place over the course of the
2021-22 school year, beginning in December. The group will meet
once a month and a short article or video will be distributed before
each meeting.  Although it is not necessary to read or watch to
participate, the article/video will guide the discussion.

For more information or to get on the email list, contact Gina Sterling, Mentor/Volunteer Coordinator at Jefferson,
