An Opportunity to Speak Out to Create and Support an Actively Anti-Racist School District
As our community and the nation debates, rallies, marches and protests around issues of racial injustice, we are creating a space for conversations with our community around equity issues for students of Des Moines Public Schools. Please join us for an action-oriented conversation with staff and administration about the barriers to equitable student outcomes and opportunities in Des Moines.
Be prepared to talk. We are prepared to listen.
