Anti-Racism Study and Action Group

Anti-Racism Study and Action Group
The Anti-Racism Study and Action Group began meeting over the summer with the expressed goal of: “How can I learn about, understand, and address issues of racism in myself and in my work as a staff member of the Dobbs Ferry School District and an ally of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color)?” Over the summer, we read Stamped from the Beginning by Ibram X. Kendi, White Fragility by Robin DiAngelo, and This Book is Anti-Racist by Tiffany Jewell. This school year, we are reading Me and White Supremacy by Layla Saad. All of this work is meant to allow us to form a brave space to engage with the current and historical roots and effects of personal, structural, and institutional racism. Ultimately, this will inform action in our work as educators and our lives as citizens.
