PAT Members in Solidarity with Black Lives Matter

PAT Racial Equity & Social Justice Committees would like to give a gigantic socially distanced thank you to everyone that made our third annual Black Lives Matter at School Week of Action a success. We would also like to thank the individuals who participated in the curriculum exchange, and most importantly, who brought those lessons back to share with their students, not only during Black History Month, but year round! Thank you to those who stood in solidarity for Black lives by wearing the BLM PAT shirts, buying Black, and attending one or both of the watch parties. We could not have done it without you! Please join us for our next Heritage month in May as we celebrate Asian-Americans and Pacific Islanders. If you would like to be a part of this planning committee, please email: [email protected], [email protected], or [email protected]
