REAL (Racial Equity and Learning) Story Sharing
This form is to collect one of your stories about your experience with race and/or racism in the Northampton Public School (NPS) Community. By story, we mean anything and everything that comes to mind. Your experiences, your observations, your thoughts, your visions; tellings of resistance, racism, whiteness, solidarity—we’re interested in all of it. As far as length, it might be a single sentence or much longer.
The overall mission of REAL is to support our school community through ongoing development and implementation of intentionally anti-racist culture and practices, in part through story collection. Our core group is composed of teachers, students and parents across the district. Please see more information at our website:
These stories will be treated with respect and care, and your names will never be connected to these stories unless you give permission.
Please check all that apply:
I am/was an NPS teacher or staff member.
I am/was an NPS administrator.
I am/was an NPS student.
I am/was an NPS parent/caregiver.
I am/was another member of the NPS community not listed above.
If you are comfortable, please share some of the ways in which you and your family identify (race, ethnicity, gender, culture, religion, sexual orientation, etc).
I would like my story to remain private, and just to be used as part of the effort to collect and share themes about race and racism in the school community.
I give permission for my story, or parts of my story, to be shared publicly, but WITHOUT my name attached.
I give permission for my story, or parts of my story, to be shared publicly WITH my name attached.
Please cut and paste your story into the box below. (We encourage you to write and save your story elsewhere first, so that you don't lose it in the case of interrupted internet.)
