Promoting Racial Equity in PPS

The Racial Equity Task Force is hosting a Happy Hour/Social for PAT educators of color on Thursday, December 7th from 4:30-6:30 PM at the PAT office: 345 NE 8th Ave.

The Racial Equity Task Force is working on recommendations to PAT and PPS outlining how to advance racial equity in our schools. In order to better advocate for our members of color, we need to understand what issues you are facing at work. We want to hear from you!

The event is primarily our social, but please RSVP so we can tailor the event to your expectations, and order enough food.
