As students across the country head back to school, the nation is grappling with yet another police shooting of a Black man. We invite the School of Education community to gather together to discuss the shooting of Jacob Blake and ensuing events in Kenosha, Wisconsin. In this interactive session, participants will discuss their own reactions to these events in small groups and share ideas about how we can move forward as educators. We’ll also discuss how to recognize trauma — particularly among students engaging in virtual environments — and share resources for responding. 

Courageous Conversations is a series of collaborative discussions about race in schools and society. Our aim is to provide a safe space to discuss race, culture, diversity, and inclusion both within the School of Education and beyond, and to discuss our roles as educators, counselors, and leaders in making a positive impact in our communities.
