KEA Black History Month Events
In celebration of Black History Month, KEA will be sponsoring several events February 1-5, 2021. The week is designed to engage educators, students, and the community in topics that confront racial and economic injustices, promote equity, and provide a platform to have discussions about current issues and working together to advocate for anti-racist and restorative schools. Please select which events you are interested in attending and Zoom links will be shared with you afterwards.

Kick-off event with Jesse Hagopian | Monday, February 1 @ 6:30pm
The community is invited to attend the kick-off event with keynote speaker Jesse Hagopian. Hagopian is an award-winning educator and a leading voice on issues of educational equity, the school-to-prison-pipeline, standardized testing, the Black Lives Matter at School movement, and social justice unionism. Join us for discussion about Jesse’s book Black Lives Matter at School and actionable ways educators and the community can work together to pursue racial equity and economic justice in our schools and community.

Students’ Rights; Teachers' Roles: ACLU Workshop | Wednesday, February 3 @ 4:45pm
Open to KUSD and RUSD educators. Students have a right to attend schools that do not discriminate on the basis of race, and students facing suspension or expulsion have a right to a fair disciplinary process. These rights have profound racial justice implications in Wisconsin, where students of color experience suspensions and expulsions at rates far higher than their white peers. This presentation is geared towards Wisconsin public school educators who want to know the details about a school district’s duties to its students in the areas of racial discrimination and discipline, and about their own role as educators in ensuring their students’ rights are protected.

Invisible Barriers: Community Panel | Thursday, February 4 @ 6:00pm
Join us for a community panel with students, parents, educators, and community activists as they reflect on the racial tension and challenges Kenosha has faced, inequities in our public schools, and their hopes and encouragement for the future. Facilitator: CEO and Interim President James Hall of the Urban League of Racine and Kenosha.
