Northwest Suburban Integration School District is deeply saddened by the murder of Daunte Wright. We know this is another incident that has caused trauma for many in our community. We mourn his death and are mindful that his death is not an exception, but another in the long list of Black men and women who were victims of police violence. We say, again, unequivocally, that Black Lives Matter.
The mission of NWSISD is to “envision a global community learning and growing together, by providing students, parents and staff educational opportunities that are multicultural, diverse, and promote racial integration.” We do this by:
Staying true to our mission and vision, we want to provide necessary resources for educators to promote racial equity. We at NWSISD want to support you wherever you may be on your equity journey. The list of resources are not exhaustive but meant to be applicable and accessible.
“Some of us have years of experience organizing in our communities, and others are new to engaging in this way. For some, anti-Blackness and police violence are deeply personal, painful lived experiences. For others, anti-racism and allyship are ongoing processes of learning, unlearning, and working toward a practice of humbled solidarity” (Teaching Tolerance, June 2, 2020).
