FORJ at Horace Mann discussion group: RSVP
Parents and guardians of students at Horace Mann Elementary School are invited to come to the school on Tuesday, December 12 from 7-9pm to discuss recent podcasts and articles on racial identity, and how we teach our children about social justice and to stand up for one another. This is a parent-led initiative. Your suggestions for discussion materials for future sessions are welcome! Send them to cpruitt@gmail.com

FORJ - Families Organizing for Racial Justice - is a Newton-wide group created by district parents. At Horace Mann, we want to support and build on the work being done by our principal and teachers to recognize privilege and develop an approach to diversity and inclusion work that enables all HM students, staff and families to feel that they belong.
