What Does It Mean to Be Anti-Racist?
To create an equitable society, we as educators and parents must commit to making unbiased choices and being anti-racist in all aspects of our lives. To be anti-racist is to be actively fighting racism; a choice resulting from a conscious decision to make frequent, consistent, equitable decisions daily. As students nationwide have joined the fight for racial equity and justice, many educators are engaging students in discussing our nation’s fraught history of systemic racism. Racism is everyone’s problem, and we all have an integral role to play in stopping it.
